Lions fumble six times in first 18 minutes in snowy Philly

Are you wondering if the snow is affecting the Lions today in Philadelphia? Here’s all you need to know: They’ve fumbled six times in the first 18 minutes of the game.

Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford has had four fumbles (all of which the Lions recovered), and running back Joique Bell has fumbled twice (both of which the Eagles recovered), and although the Lions have moved the ball reasonably well considering the conditions, they still haven’t scored.

The Eagles haven’t scored, either, as their hurry-up offense is also struggling on a snowy day.

Whether the Lions can overcome their propensity to turn the ball over, and whether the Eagles can get their offense in a groove, will go a long way toward determining whether anyone can put any points on the board. So far, it looks like it’s going to be a defensive struggle.

    I think they the horrific fox lines ripped the ball out of their arms.

    Not sure what is more pathetic: six fumbles or the fact that the Eagles are still down.

    Looks like the media’s new golden boy just threw his first pick.
    It also looks like the scoreboard reads 8-0 Lions so those fumbles must not be hurting us too bad.

    As an Eagles fan I’m absolutely loving this game despite the score. It’s so old school, this is football! Running the ball, really short throws, and more running the ball. Extra point? Run the ball.

    Now Chip just needs to catch up with the play calling, can’t have a dome team teaching Philly real football! Speaking of real football, just checked KC and WOW!

    Lions turn it over in any weather. But are good enough to still over come it often.

    Come on! This has to be a joke…or at least a record!
