Thanks to a rash of injuries, the Philadelphia Eagles Seem like the NFL pick for Sunday’s game against the visiting Detroit Lions.

The Detroit Lions (1-0-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) are undefeated through the first two games of the regular season. That is very great, right? The Lions looked just like a poor team coming into 2019, also as stated by the DVOA stats in Football Outsiders, they are what we thought that they were: No. 14 total in efficiency. That is only four places behind the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1 SU, 0-2 ATS), mind you. And with all the injuries Philadelphia have endured, we’re actually going to put the Lions in our NFL picks for Sunday’s matchup (1:00 p.m. ET, FOX). Too bad they are down from +8 at the open to +6.5 at press time, however. Timing is all. If it had not been for those harms, this might have been one of the tightest lines in the Week 3 NFL odds board. Here’s what the projections need to state: FiveThirtyEight: Philadelphia –6 Jeff Sagarin: Detroit –0.28, 44.88 complete Waitwhat? Jeff Sagarin’s figures at The USA Today appear to be all over the map for this specific contest — for the large part, his projections such as the Lions to win by a hair, although we’re using his general Rating here. That does talk to the issues Philadelphia has experienced on protection, problems we saw at last week’s 24-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons (+1 at home). Things are likely to get worse. DT Timmy Jernigan broke his foot in Atlanta, one week a injury was suffered by DT Malik Jackson and has been lost for the year, later. And the offense is in issue: WR DeSean Jackson is out two weeks with an abdominal strain, whilst TE Dallas Goedert and WR Alshon Jeffery are iffy at best for Sunday with crab breeds. Read more here:
