The Philadelphia Eagles face arguably their toughest test of the season to date when they host the explosive Detroit Lions on Sunday. Winners of four straight, the Eagles are surging and looking to keep pace with the Dallas Cowboys in the suddenly competitive NFC East.
That means slowing down an attack of Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush that can put up 40 points on a team and not look back.
Meanwhile, second-year quarterback Nick Foles will need to continue his MVP-caliber play to match points with Stafford & Co. Foles has accounted for 21 touchdowns without a single interception this season, and he’s all but won the starting quarterback job for next season. Coming away with a win against the NFC North-leading Lions would cement his case.
