Lions vs Eagles Preview
The Eagles fell to 1-1 after failing to contain Julio Jones late last week, watching the Falcons wide receiver scamper 54 yards for the eventual game-winning score late in the fourth quarter.
Quarterback Carson Wentz and the Eagles simply didn’t have enough in the tank for a comeback, with receivers DeSean Jackson (groin) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) out of action.
“It was tough,” Wentz said in the postgame. “Some of the stuff tonight you can’t make up. I’ve never seen guy after guy like that early in the ballgame, but guys stepped up. Guys were resilient. We came up a little short today, but I’m proud of the way the guys fought.”
Wentz has seen his last two seasons end early with injuries and there’s been some debate if he should change his playing style, which features a hefty serving of reckless abandon. He took a beating against the Falcons again, but his head coach said Wentz is “fine.”
They’ll get another chance against the Lions, who are 1-0-1 this season. Detroit blew a lead and then settled for a tie against the Cardinals to open up the season, but managed a nice win against the Chargers last week.
Lions head coach Matt Patricia has some familiarity with the Eagles, having been the Patriots defensive coordinator when Philadelphia won Super Bowl XXVI. However, he’s not sure how much it will help.
“This team [the Eagles were] different that year. Different kind of quarterback, different kind of just there were some differences from that year to what everything looks like right now. And we’re in the same boat,” Patricia explained when asked about the Super Bowl on a conference call earlier this week. “We look completely different. Obviously, I’m [with] an entirely new team.”
There’s another coaching link with Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who was the head coach of the Lions from 2009-2013. Quarterback Matthew Stafford, long snapper Don Muhlbach, punter Sam Martin and cornerback Darius Slay are the only players that remain from that era.
“It’s funny, I don’t recognize anybody on that team,” Schwartz told reporters this week. “That shows you how much turnover there is in this league because it really doesn’t seem that long ago. Maybe it has been.”
The Eagles are listed as 5-point favorites for the game with a total of 45.5.
