Nick Foles finally throws a pick, Lions take 8-0 lead

staffordsnow AP

Stop the presses: Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has thrown an interception.

Foles’s first interception of the season came in the second quarter on a snowy day against the Lions, and Detroit’s Chris Houston did the honors of picking him off. Both offenses have struggled to hold onto the ball all day in the cold and snowy conditions in Philadelphia.

The Lions took advantage of good field position after the interception with a Joique Bell touchdown run. They then decided to go for two, thinking that a snap, hold and kick would be difficult in the snow, and Bell scored the two-point conversion, too. The Lions took an early 8-0 lead.

This kind of weather is conducive to a defensive struggle, so an 8-0 lead for the Lions is significant. Snow might be just the thing to slow down the fast-paced Eagles offense.

    Chip has to run the ball it was completely obvious Foles had poor vision on that throw.

    I wonder if the head honchos at the NFL are taking a good look at this game and wondering what lurks for them at the Super Bowl in NY/NJ?

    Perhaps they are experiencing some buyers remorse?

    I wish it was snowing in New England. Brady plays well in the snow. A few years ago he threw 5 tds in the 2nd quarter. Against the titans. Usually it benefits the offence where the receivers know where they are going and it’s tough for the defense to cover

    That pick is on Chip. His play calling in the first half has been Andy Reid-like.

    Yea , run the ball more and look for short passes . Double team calvin please

    This is proof that Nick Foles is terrible.

    19 td – 1 int

    Guess chip’s high powered offense didn’t count on weather like today. Zero points at the half. NICE

    Don’t worry, the Eagles fans will still overrate him.

    Wow the refs just fabricated 2 penalty calls in one drive for the Eagles. The commentators can’t even figure what the second one was or who it was on.

    Not usually a fan of the conspiracy theroies, but come on NFL, phantom calls kept the Eagles in this…Lions have a hard enough time on their own but the bs calls have to stop!

    NFL had to go out of it’s way today to make sure Philly wins this game. Play after play, the refs had to get creative…

    The NFL is all about marketing. This makes the MNF game more meaningful. It’s all about the money.

    I turned the game off because I couldn’t watch the refs any longer. Horrible day for football.

    The commish needs to go.

    Hochuli directly handed the Eagles 8 points. How can blatant unjustifiable cheating like this be tolerated in professional sports?! This needs to be recognized and discussed by the media.

    This whole “the NFL wants the Eagles to win the Super Bowl” thing is laughable. I bet you are all Cardinal fans.

  17. carryon1116 says: Dec 8, 2013 10:28 PM

    Well the whole “chip Kelley can’t be successful in the NFL” dosnt exist anymore?

  18. jonsilver1947 says: Dec 9, 2013 2:18 AM

    Three irrational calls in 3 minutes turned 14-0 Lions into 14-14…the Eagles tight end blatantly held a Detroit D lineman right in the frame with Foles on the touchdown pass…Fairley hit Foles in the midsection the instant after he got rid of the ball and got called for roughing the passer…and, on the first 2 point conversion attempt at the tie, calling Suh for defensive holding was absurd…disgusting…
