Brady sees 'urgency' in preseason game vs Super Bowl foe

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady thinks his next game against the Philadelphia Eagles is a little like the last time he played them.

The reigning NFL MVP says he's eager to get back on the field for the first time since the Super Bowl, and his next chance is in Thursday night's exhibition game against Philadelphia. Brady did not play in the preseason opener against Washington last week.

"We've got a big one against the Eagles and we know the challenge they present," Brady said on Tuesday. "So, (we're) trying to put a lot into it and see if we can obviously get a lot out of it. You know, it's a big test. They're a good team and we're going to have to play well."
