Eagles vs. Lions Week 8: Live Stream, NFL Odds, TV Coverage Map, More
The Philadelphia Eagles (2-5) are back on the road in Week 8 and face a winless Detroit Lions (0-7) team early Sunday afternoon.
Three weeks in a row now, the Eagles have struggled through three quarters and made a good effort to make their way into games during the garbage period, but again their efforts failed last week against the Raiders. Nick Sirianni said his message to the team this week is that they must continue to build a solid foundation and, like a flower, they will see the results in time. He still has confidence in his players and coaches, but expects a few changes from the defense this week.
Detroit is in a similar situation with a new head coach, albeit not for the first time, and this team has more fire to win a game than almost anyone else in the league. Head coach Dan Campbell became emotional when he spoke to reporters after the game about his desire for success for his players who are completely dedicated to preparation and play every week. Yet in seven games they haven’t been able to pull it off with Jared Goff at quarterback and plenty of playmakers on both sides of the ball.
Here’s everything you need to know on how to watch the game.
