A win in Philadelphia could put Detroit in prime position to secure not only a playoff spot, but to host the first ever playoff game at Ford Field. Philadelphia, currently tied with the Dallas Cowboys for first in the NFC East, need this game just as badly.

The Lions should break the Eagles streak of holding opponents to 21 points or less, but Nick Foles and company will put up points as well. This one will come down to the turnover battle and special teams. I think Philly takes it in a close one by winning the turnover battle.

Final: Eagles 28, Lions 24
