In a game from Week 5 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan.
Philadelphia Eagles are coming off a bye week to meet the Detroit Lions who are trying to snap a three-game losing streak. Philly stands at 3-0 and they are looking to improve to 4-0. The gamble Philly took when they put Carson Wentz under the spotlights is paying off so far. He has been very impressive, completing 64.7 percent of his passes for five touchdowns and zero interceptions. The defense has also been doing its job since Jim Schwartz was appointed as a defensive coordinator. The Lions come off an embarrassing loss to the Chicago Bears when they put up just 14 points against an injured defense without their main players.
Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions which may be an issue on Sunday, either. Their only touchdown came on a punt return and their offense was suspect for most of the time. That’s why I predict Philadelphia Eagles to win again and improve to 4-0.
