The Eagles (1-1) will host the Lions (1-0-1) at the Linc this Sunday at 1 p.m.
Here’s everything you need to know:
The FOX broadcasters for this game are Thom Brennaman (play by play), Chris Spielman (color) and Shannon Spake (sideline).
Merrill Reese, Mike Quick and Howard Eskin will have the call on 94WIP.
A long list of injuries
The Eagles are banged up heading into this game. That includes three important skill position players: Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Dallas Goedert.
Without those guys in this game, the Eagles will have to rely on backups. That includes Mack Hollins and J.J. Arcega Whiteside.
On defense, they’ll be without Tim Jernigan (broken foot), who had already replaced the injured Malik Jackson at defensive tackle.
Two games in five days
The Eagles in some ways are already preparing for Thursday Night Football. They had a walkthrough on Wednesday and so did the Packers in Green Bay. Both teams play at 1 p.m. on Sunday and then against on Thursday, Sept. 26 in Green Bay. Because that game in Green Bay will be a tough one to win, this one against the Lions is extremely important.
Hard to figure
This Lions team is a tough one to understand. They let the Cardinals come back and tie them in the opener and then took down a potential playoff team in the Chargers in Week 2. Ultimately, they’re probably just a mediocre team that’s destined for 7-9 wins, but the Eagles certainly can’t take them lightly on Sunday.
