The first half of tonight's Philadelphia Eagles-New England Patriots preseason game included some fireworks on the sideline. Eagles coach Andy Reid was seen arguing with defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins in the second quarter.'s Jeff McLane reports:

The argument was caught by ESPN cameras. Reid said something to Jenkins and the defensive tackle appeared to say something in return to his head coach. Defensive line coach Jim Washburn then stepped in between the two. Reid then yelled at Washburn.

The Eagles had just allowed the Patriots to score a touchdown after they went 80 yards in 13 plays. A Ryan Mallett 7-yard TD pass to tight end Alex Silvestro ended the drive.

Cameras later caught Reid calling Jenkins over for a seemingly calm conversation.
