Jim Schwartz's group is 1-3 on the campaign and in danger of slipping too far back in the very competitive NFC East. The Lions have suffered some unexpected losses since barely beating the St. Louis Rams on opening day, including to the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings.

The Eagles were beaten last weekend on a last-second Shaun Suisham field goal in Pittsburgh, dropping their record to 3-2.

On Yahoo.com, Les Carpenter sided with Philadelphia while Jason Cole is sticking with Matthew Stafford and co. Finally, the men at CBSSports.com overwhelming picked the Eagles straight up, save Josh Katzowitz.
