The Philadelphia Eagles are trying to find a way to steal a home victory against the Detroit Lions after finding themselves into a 10-point halftime deficit thanks to two fumbles in the first half. Carson Wentz found Nelson Agholor on an impressive 20-yard touchdown pass to cut Philadelphia’s deficit to three points entering the fourth quarter.
Agholor has had a rough afternoon with two drops and a fumble, but redeemed himself with the touchdown catch, which was the fifth touchdown pass year for Wentz.
Detroit is threatening to score as the Lions are deep in Eagles territory, as Eagles cornerback Rasul Douglas kept the deficit at three points with a pass breakup in the end zone. The fourth quarter will be a good one.

The Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) won’t be circling an easy win on their calendar this week, not with the way the Detroit Lions (1-0-1) have played their first two games. The Lions are coming off an upset victory over the Los Angeles Chargers after Matthew Stafford threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Golladay with 7:21 left. Stafford threw two interceptions in the game, but the Lions have plenty of weapons in Golladay, T.J. Hockenson, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola.
The Lions aren’t a pushover. While the stats are deceiving, the Lions have played well to open up the season in making their case they should be undefeated. Detroit is 17th in the NFL in points per game (20) and eighth in yards per game (408). They’ll be facing an Eagles defense that is 25th in points allowed per game (25.5) and 22nd in yards allowed per game (382.5). Philadelphia is eighth in points per game (26) and 14th in yards per game (364) while Detroit is 11th in points allowed per game (18.5) and 27th in yards allowed per game (405.5).
