The tokens will be handed out to Broad Street Line riders at the Walnut/Locust Station between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. before the Eagles' final preseason game against the New York Jets.

This year marks the third consecutive season that McDonald's will partner with the Eagles.

Other planned promotions include:

• Eagles fans who have the fast food chain's mobile app can receive a free Big Mac the day after the team records a sack during a home game.

• Text-to-win sweepstakes to win two tickets to a game, two pre-game field passes, lunch with a player, a tour of the NovaCare Complex and dinner with two coaches.

The partnership between McDonald's and the Eagles was recently extended through the 2019 season.
