Things have gone completely down hill for the Philadelphia Eagles as they get set for their Thanksgiving showdown with the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
The Eagle are already on their backup QB and were completely embarrassed at home last week against the Bucs.
The Lions have felt what the Eagles are feeling all season long. Detroit is just 3-7 and has been an absolute mess all season long.
The Eagles are using Mark Sanchez after Sam Bradford went down with an injury and things did not look good for them last Sunday.
Their offense sputtered and turned the ball over setting up the Bucs many times as Tampa Bay embarrassed the Eagles 45-17 in Philadelphia. This was Sanchez’s 2nd game calling the shots as the Eagles have racked up just 36 points total in his 2 starts and has added 4 interceptions.
While a lot of the blame can be put on Sanchez Sunday, the defense was rather pathetic. Bucs QB Jameis Winston had 5 touchdown passes and Doug Martin racked up 235 rush yards in the Tampa Bay win.
The good news for Philadelphia, they run into a Detroit team that is just as worse. The Lions have scored 20 points just twice this season, which should give the Eagles defense a real chance to bounce back .
It took them 10 games into the season, but the Detroit Lions can finally say they have a winning streak going.
Detroit has rattled off 2 straight wins, after knocking off the Packers and now Raiders. With their win on Sunday over Oakland, it was the first time the Lions covered at home. They are now 1-5 ATS inside Ford Field.
The offensive problems are still arousing as Detroit continues to struggle with points. In both wins they’ve tallied just 18 points a piece. The good news has been Matthew Stafford and his play increasing to the levels like it used to.
Stafford threw for 282 yards last week and added the go ahead rushing touchdown in the win.
This will be a solid chance for Stafford to continue his rise as he’ll face an Eagles secondary that has struggled twice out of the last three games.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Eagles ATS
The Eagles defense has been the main culprit for their struggles. They’ve failed to hold leads their offense gives them lately and that has to improve. This is a prime chance to do so against a Lions team that has no run game.
Philadelphia can play the pass and add some extra coverage in the secondary.
