The Eagles lead their all-time series over the Detroit Lions by one game.
Last season, the Birds gave the fans a treat on Halloween as they walloped the Detroit Lions by a 44-6 margin. In the process, they earned a 17-16-2 advantage in the all-time series.
The offense relied heavily on the rushing attack as Jordan Howard, and Boston Scott combined for four touchdowns. Former Lion Darius Slay made his presence felt, recovering a forced fumble by Detroit’s own Avonte Maddox that Big Play would return 33 yards for a touchdown.
The dominating win in 2021 snapped a surprising three-game losing streak to the lowly Lions. Prior to that, Philadelphia’s last victory came on December 8th of 2013 in an awesome game at Lincoln Financial Field, one that’s affectionately known as the Snow Bowl.
No one will ever forget where they were when LeSean McCoy had no problem with any traction issues and ran for 217 rushing yards and two touchdowns in that one.
Jalen Hurts and the rest of the Eagles are looking to make it two straight wins against the Lions as they open the season in the Motor City. Philly figures to be favored, and they figure to make that happen. Their offense is expected to be even more lethal than its 2021 version. Plus, the Birds have won four of their last five opening-day games.
