Pro Football Network: Lions 24, Eagles 23

Ben Rolfe writes: "This matchup between the Eagles and Lions has a feeling of an upset about it. Detroit is desperate to win a game — we have seen that every week. Meanwhile, Philadelphia apparently only steps up in the fourth quarter. The Lions will throw everything at the Eagles this week, and it might just be enough for their first win of the season."

Andrew Buller-Russ writes: "When it comes to bad QB depth charts, Jared Goff being atop any sheet is a bad sign. Goff was terrible under the best of circumstances for the Los Angeles Rams last year. Unfortunately for the Eagles, Jalen Hurts has not been much better as his team has lost five of six. Here, we go with the upset and Detroit’s first win of the season."

Teddy Ricketson writes: "The Eagles aren’t playing that well, and I think the Lions sneak a win here. I went back and forth on this pick because I do think that the Lions are better than their record suggests, but they are still winless. They have hung in there with much better teams, and the Eagles have been struggling. I don’t say it often, but I like the Lions to cover in this one."

CBS Sports: Eagles will beat Lions in Week 8

Jeff Kerr writes: "Back-to-back road games shouldn't phase the Eagles here. The Lions are going to be a tough out under Dan Campbell, but the Eagles have to stop the running back tandem of Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift in order to come out of the Motor City with a win. This will be the defense's best game of the year to date."

Sportsnaut: Lions 30, Eagles 23

Vincent Frank writes: "Jalen Hurts is the exact type of quarterback who could give the Lions a ton of trouble. This is especially true with the team’s lack of sidelined-to-sideline speed. Add in the presence of stud running back Miles Sanders and dynamic rookie receiver Devonta Smith, and this is magnified further. Expect a double-digit Eagles win here."
