FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Patriots made their 2014 preseason premiere at Gillette Stadium on Friday, Aug. 15, prevailing over the visiting Philadelphia Eagles 42-35 in a game that was the most-watched program in the Boston market for the second straight week.

WBZ Channel 4’s Patriots All Access pregame show ranked second locally for Friday programming with 199,600 total viewers (Patriots game broadcast ranked No. 1) and was the 11th most watched program of the week.
