Lions vs. Eagles: Five things to watch

Last week’s win in the home opener means we are out of “must-win” territory for a while.

Sunday in Philadelphia is a new category of urgency for the Lions: The first of three “Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…” games.

It’s house money in some ways, but a three-game losing streak at Philly, against Kansas City and at Green Bay would put Detroit in another hole at 1-3-1.

Better to get at least one of these games, and Sunday might be the best chance against the beat up Eagles.
