Player(s) to Watch: Eagles' Front 7

The Lions offensive line will be faced with a tough test against the Eagles front seven that Pro Football Focus ranked as the best in the NFL last season. This grade was based on a combination of pass coverage, pass rush and run prevention. The Eagles front unit is highlighted by Fletcher Cox, who ended last year with a career-high 95 pressures. 

Stat to Know

While boasting a better record over the past five seasons, the Eagles have not beaten Detroit since 2013. On the other side of the coin, the Lions can equalize the all-time series between the two teams with a victory.
