Brady wins preseason debut, Pats top Eagles 42-35

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Tom Brady threw a touchdown pass after sitting out the first preseason game and the New England Patriots capitalized on four turnovers to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 42-35 on Friday night.

Brady’s backups also were sharp in their competition for the No. 2 quarterback job with rookie Jimmy Garoppolo throwing two touchdown passes and Ryan Mallett passing for one and running for another.

The Eagles rarely had the ball early.

And when they got it later, they kept giving it away.

New England had two offensive series before the Eagles had one since the Patriots’ first ended with Cary Williams’ 77-yard interception return for a touchdown. Brady threw to Steve Maneri, but the tight end who signed five days earlier didn’t turn around.
