Last week, the Lions narrowly escaped with a victory as the team sidled past the Chargers 13-10. Detroit can attribute much of their success to WR Kenny Golladay, who caught 8 passes for 117 yards and 1 touchdown.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia was the 18-12 winner over Atlanta when they last met Sept. of last year. Last week? They had no such luck. Philadelphia was within a late touchdown of stealing the win, but they took the “L” against Atlanta 20-24.
Detroit’s win lifted them to 1-0-1 while Philadelphia’s defeat dropped them down to 1-1. The Eagles are stumbling into the game with the fourth most passing touchdowns allowed in the league, having given up 6 on the season. But the Lions come into the matchup boasting the fourth most passing touchdowns in the league at 5. Maybe that strength will give the Lions the oomph they need to beat the odds.
