NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

To the (bad) news...

Schwartz's decision is costly for Eagles - Inquirer

"No, not at all," Pederson said when asked if Bradham's curtailed playing time had anything to do with his latest scrap with the law. "We definitely wanted to get Tulloch some more reps tonight early in the game and keep Nigel and Jordan fresh and healthy as the game went on."

Maybe Bradham's stellar play after the break came as a result of playing less, but it's doubtful that defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was looking to spot the Lions three touchdowns on all three of their possessions at the expense of resting the linebacker who has arguably been his best this season.

Kendricks just isn't good. While Schwartz has deservedly gotten a lot of credit for the way the Eagles have played great defense so far this season, choosing to play Kendricks over Hicks or Bradham just doesn't make much sense to me, in any scenario.

And by the way, Bradham may be a cabana boy-beating, gun-toting "dumbass," but the man can play football.

Late fumble in Detroit costly as Eagles endure first loss - ESPN

Carson Wentz threw his first interception on a deep ball to Nelson Agholor in the closing moments, and the Lions walked away Sunday with a 24-23 win.

"It's not necessarily designed for that, but the opportunity was there," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said of Wentz's decision to throw long. "Detroit did a nice job defending the actual first and second progression on the play, and then you're hoping maybe you get the pass interference or penalty at that point or an incomplete pass. It's worth a shot."

Eagles pay price for 14 penalties - Inquirer

The Eagles were penalized 14 times for 111 yards Sunday in the 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions.

They entered the game with 22 penalties for 179 yards in the first three games this season, so the problems on Sunday were abnormal.

"That's tough, it's tough to overcome," coach Doug Pederson said. "But I thought they hung in there. Again, didn't point any fingers to anybody, accepted their responsibility, and moved on. Did a nice job of trying to overcome a few setbacks. Kept us in some third-and-longs we didn't need to be in. We've just go to learn from it."
