The Detroit Lions headed into Philadelphia for a date with the Eagles. In a game where up to eight inches of snow fell from kickoff to final gun, the Lions saw an early lead slip away in a 34-20 loss. 

Detroit fell to 7-6, while the Eagles improved to 8-5. The Lions remain in first place in the NFC North, but now they must win every remaining game if they want to ensure the first NFC North title in team history. 

The Lions draw the 7-6 Baltimore Ravens when Monday Night Football returns to Ford Field next week. A win there is imperative if the Lions hope to hold off the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears

Impact plays weigh heavily on the grades. Turnovers, touchdowns and key stops influence the marks in both directions. 

Here are the grades for Detroit.
