The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Thursday as the team is set to play the Detroit Lions in a Week 12 game. This is the second year in a row where the Eagles are playing on Thanksgiving. Last year the Eagles beat the Cowboys in Dallas. Philadelphia is desperate to get a win here in order to keep their season alive. A win means getting to 5-6 while a loss means dropping to 4-7.
There's a lot of pressure on the Eagles to win this game. The team is coming off two pathetic performances in a row. Speculation has already begun that Chip Kelly might not return for the 2016 season. The Lions haven't been a good team this year, but they're on a two game win streak so this won't be easy for the Eagles. Mark Sanchez is expected to start at quarterback for the second straight week. Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the game.
