Don’t allow yourselves to believe the Philadelphia Eagles have a walkthrough on Sunday. Here are ten Lions who could ruin the victory party.
Don’t look now, but Matt Patricia‘s slowly building something in Detroit with the Lions. Now, some questions come along with making that statement. One, can he build something with the Lions that every other coach has failed in building, a perennial playoff team? Second, how long will building a winner take? Third, will the Lions grant him the needed time? The next step in their journey leads them to a road date with the Philadelphia Eagles.
After battling their way to a tie in Week 1 versus the Arizona Cardinals, the Lions outlasted the favored Los Angeles Chargers in their Week 2 home opener. This season may or may not result in a postseason appearance, but one thing is certain. So far, it doesn’t appear as though the Lions are going to make it easy for anyone.
If you think that this is going to be a walkthrough on Sunday for the Eagles, you’re sadly mistaken. The Lions may not be elite, but they aren’t the Miami Dolphins either. Here are ten guys who will be on the other sideline that figure to make things tough on the Eagles.
