The Eagles and Nick Foles are way overdue for a stumble, but after picking against them last week, I think I owe the boys one. This will be quite a challenge, just as last week was quite a challenge. I'm not going to assume they won't meet it.
Foles ought to be able to throw on this secondary, if the ball isn't caked in ice. During his conference call this week, Jim Schwartz, like several coaches the Eagles have faced recently, seemed to be under the impression that if he stops LeSean McCoy, he won't have to worry too much about Foles. We'll see, but that formula hasn't worked for anybody since October.
Eagles 28, Lions 27
