Week 3 – Lions @ Eagles
The Eagles got off to a good start, but an explosive 2nd quarter for the Lions helped them edge out a win. Dropped passes plagued the Eagles for a second week in a row. This time a crucial potential game-winning pass went off the fingertips of rookie WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside. In total, the Eagles had 7 dropped or tipped passes including another key one by TE Dallas Goedert in the end zone also in the 4th quarter.
Lions QB Matthew Stafford was 18/32 for 201 yards and 1 TD; while Eagles QB Carson Wentz went 19/36 for 259 yards and 2 TDs.
Lions are technically undefeated at 2-0-1; while the Eagles fall to 1-2.
