The Patriots have placed WR/PR Gunner Olszewski (ankle/hamstring) on injured reserve, per a source. With the open roster spot, the club officially elevated LT Isaiah Wynn to the 53-man roster from injured reserve. Olszewski has been the Patriots' primary punt returner through the first six games of the season, but Mohamed Sanu has stepped into that role in recent games.

From 2006-2018, the Patriots finished (including postseason) no lower than eighth in offensive efficiency. They currently rank 16th. (Offensive efficiency is expected points added per play, with garbage time down-weighted. 2006 is the earliest year of the metric.)

Patriots kicker Nick Folk came up well short on his final 53-yard FG attempt to the "open" end of Lincoln Financial Field, with the ball landing about halfway through the end zone. Wind is a factor. Folk's range looks to be about a long of 48 yards today.

Patriots inactives: TE Ryan Izzo, PR Gunner Olszewski, DT Byron Cowart, QB Cody Kessler, OT Korey Cunningham, S Patrick Chung, RB Damien Harris. So personal protector Nate Ebner (ankle/back) passed his pre-game test. It is the first time the TE tandem of Matt LaCosse/Benjamin Watson has been active together.

The sportsbook at The Borgata in Atlantic City almost always gets lopsided money on the Eagles, but not today, at least not yet. Two hours prior to kickoff, 97% of the money that's been bet on the Patriots-Eagles game is on favored New England. "This is shaping up to be one of the most lop-sided games of the year for us," Borgata sportsbook director Tom Gable says.
