First and 10: Football mania in Pennsylvania

Tonight’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles might be just a preseason affair, but believe the hype: Last season’s AFC champs are licking their chops at the chance to take on this season’s preseason darlings.

Here’s what else is on tap Thursday:

  • With Week 2 of the preseason about to kick off, analyst Elliot Harrison explains why these games are so important, and runs down this weekend’s most intriguing storylines.
  • Several high-profile NFL players implicated in a scandal involving an imprisoned University of Miami booster brushed off the claims Wednesday, while others refused to comment, but no player explicitly denied the allegations.
  • If you think Manning is in Tom Brady‘s class, our Adam Rank has some other things you probably think in his latest Pick Six.
  • Will Donovan McNabb replicate Brett Favre‘s 2009 success with the Vikings, or his 2010 failure in Washington? senior writer Steve Wyche reports from Minnesota’s training camp.
