Logos of the Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions in a diagonal composition posted from York, PA

It's the Philadelphia Eagles' first game this season. Their first challenger was the Detroit Lions. The Lions were the underdog in the game, as everyone expected a clean win from the Eagles. We live in reality and not a fairytale, so the underdog did not clench this out (Thank goodness!). While the Lions drew first blood, the Eagles quickly evened the score in Quarter 2 and never lost the lead. The Detroit Lions did narrow the lead, and there was a chance that they could flip the game in Quarter 4. Get a full breakdown of the game stats below:

Game Highlights

Kenneth Gainwell punches in the short touchdown

The Eagle's line is so good that Running Back Gainwell can score on a 2-yard run.

Hurts connects with AJ Brown for a 54-yard reception

Huge props to the o-line on that play. They formed a literal wall on the right side. It was beautiful. I shed a tear. It was an incredible effort by AJ on the catch but even more so on gaining the extra yards afterward.

I love it when Judo and wrestling enter the NFL. Too bad it was the Lions displaying such machismo. Anyway, take a look at this impressive hip toss.

That's it for the Eagle's first game. Come back Monday for a recap of the Eagle's next match versus the Minnesota Vikings.
