Eagles’ D has no answer as Lions open up early lead


Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz was once the Lions’ head coach. He’s not enjoying today’s return to Detroit.

The Lions have had the ball twice today against the Eagles, and they have two long touchdown drives to show for it.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is 6-of-8 for 71 yards and two touchdowns, with no interceptions. Theo Riddick caught both touchdown passes. Stafford also had a 14-yard run that helped the Lions’ second drive, with a 15-yard penalty tacked on when he was hit as he was sliding.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz couldn’t do anything on Philadelphia’s first possession. The Eagles are going to need Wentz to open things up because they’re in an early hole.
