For many, the knowledge that the Philadelphia Eagles had ten days to prepare for the Las Vegas Raiders and, yet still displayed the apathetic performance that we saw in Week 7 is very discouraging. There are only so many times that you can be told that ‘this team is close’ and that ‘this is going to be beautiful’ once they figure it all out.

For Jalen Hurts, head coach Nick Sirianni, and company, the rent might still be due every day. Unfortunately, it’s past due now.

What do we do now? Oh, that’s right. We push forward. After all, it’s a week-to-week league.

The Eagles’ next step in the journey leads them to the Motor City to face a winless Detroit Lions team. Following yet another mishap, they’re winless on the 2021 NFL season after seven games. Surely, the Eagles will win this one right?

Well, don’t be too hasty. The Lions always seem to give Philadelphia trouble. They’ve beaten the Birds in each of the last three meetings between these teams, and they’ve won four of the last five meetings.

Keep your fingers crossed. If Philly loses this one, panic may set in.

Eagles vs Lions Prediction Week 8

Depending on the health of Miles Sanders, this is a game in which the Birds can really build on the balanced attack that we saw during the first couple of offensive series that we saw in Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7. The Eagles finally got off to a quick start, but the drought came again.

light. Trending. Ranking potential draft replacements for Zach Ertz

Still, in a battle of rookie head coaches, the thing that scares you is the Lions and playing much more consistently than the Eagles are. They just haven’t been able to put that cherry on top.

Philly should win this, and we believe that they will, but they’ll need to play like they typically play in the fourth quarter of games during the first three quarters to get the job done. Final score: Eagles 27, Lions 24
