Quick Take: Foles outplays Weeden

Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has his takeaways from the game:

From Around the League:
» Lessons from Friday's preseason games

» Brandon Weedenwasn't that accurate, leading the Browns to just three points. He appears to have one speed with his throws, and it's often too fast for touch passes. He struggled when the Eagles brought pressure and couldn't come up with a Plan B before the snap.

» Eagles rookie Nick Foles continues to play extremely well. He has a great arm and has shown surprising accuracy. He easily outplayed Weeden despite an early interception. Foles has completed a lot of difficult throws. Don't be surprised if he passes Mike Kafka on the depth chart and becomes a favorite of Eagles fans.

» If the Browns were showcasing Colt McCoy for a trade, it worked. He was very sharp with 74 yards and a score on 9 attempts.

» Damaris Johnson has enjoyed a Victor Cruz-like coming out party during the preseason. He will be a useful reserve for the Eagles. He caught two 29-yard passes and almost came down with another terrific touchdown.
