Eagles defeat Jets 28-10 Get down to 53 with some surprising cuts

The Eagles after last night went undefeated in the preseason for the first time since 1995 with a win over the Jets 28-10. Trent Edwards lit it up again as he has all preseason with 197 yards and two touchdowns which earned him a roster spot as the Eagles cut Mike Kafka today.
