Eagles host Lions gameday open thread

Detroit Lions @ Philadelphia Eagles
Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
Time: 1:00pm
TV: FOX | Radio: 94.1 WYSP, Sirius 118
Weather: Gametime will be sunny and 76 degrees with 12 mph winds from the northwest.

Eagles will wear the Blue/Yellow throwback jerseys and helmets.

Last week the Redskins were able to negate the Eagles pass rush with short drops and quick passes, as well as a healthy dose of running. The Lions are not likely to take the same approach. They'll look to go downfield, which means big tests for Will James but also means more opportunities to get pressure. If the defensive line can get to Kitna we could be in good shape, if not it could be a very long day. On offense, will we see the McNabb from the first 3 quarters on Monday or the one from the 4th quarter? Who knows? Since I've picked wins in the first two weeks and that hasn't worked out I'm going to other way and predict a 24-17 defeat to Detroit.

For a Lions perspective, check out Pride Of Detroit.

Use this as your open thread for all predictions/cheers/rants/laments.... and Go BIRDS!
