An NFC battle between the visiting Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions will take place at Ford Field in week eight NFL action. Both of these teams are falling out of contention, with the Eagles (2-5) dropping a 33-22 decision to the Las Vegas Raiders, while the Detroit Lions (0-7) are still searching for their first win after a 28-19 loss to the Rams. Early NFL odds for this matchup have opened with the Eagles as the -3 favorite, while the point total opened at 48.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles had another rough outing, getting outgained 443-358 in dominating fashion. After opening with a touchdown, the Eagles’ next five possessions ended in three punts and two fumbles. They have lost five of their last six games and are averaging just 22 points per game in that span.

The defense was shredded by Derek Carr, allowing 323 yards in the air while also allowing Carr to complete 91 percent of his passes (31 of 34). Additionally, the 29th-ranked defense against the run allowed two more touchdowns on the ground. They’ll look to get back on track against a struggling Lions offense.

Detroit is the NFL’s only winless team after dropping its seventh consecutive game. The Lions actually played their best all-around games,carrying a two-point lead into the fourth quarter. Running back D’Andre Swift had a 63-yard touchdown catch, but the offense failed to score in five red-zone possessions.

The defense has struggled mightily and did so once again, conceding 334 yards in the air and three touchdown passes to former Detroit QB Matthew Stafford. The secondary has struggled to contain wide receivers, giving up an average of 263 yards in the air.
