NFL Week 2 Predictions - Eagles at Lions Odds: This intriguing NFL predictions match-up during week two of the NFL betting season features two teams without their starting quarterbacks as the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Detroit Lions. the Las Vegas odds have the Eagles as -6(-110) road week 2 NFL picks favorites. The last time these two teams played was in 2007 and the Lions gave-up 56 points to the Eagles in this NFL predictions contest.
This 2010 NFL predictions week 2 battle should not be so lopsided.
The Lions (0-1) come into this week 2 NFL preedicitons game after a heart-breaking loss to the Bears 19-14 in which receiver Calvin Johnson’s last second touchdown was ruled incomplete by the officials. Detroit will have to go on without starting quarterback Matthew Stafford, who injured his shoulder. Shaun Hill was not overly productive taking over for Stafford and he’ll face a stiff challenge with the Eagles defense. Hill might need to lean on rookie running back Jahvid Best in this Sunday NFL predictions match-up to take the pressure off the passing game. Best scored two touchdowns in his NFL predictions debut and could see an expanded role this week. The Eagles gave-up a boat load of big plays to the Packer in last weeks NFL preidcitons contest so look for Johnson to find some room in the secondary. Tight end Tony Scheffler was a big target last week but he might have some difficulties against the Eagles safeties in Sunday's week 2 NFL preidctions match-up.
The Eagles (0-1) allowed the Packers to jump out to a 20-3 lead before the defense stiffened, sacking Aaron Rodgers three times and picking-off two passes. Philadelphia could make life very difficult for Hill, especially with pressure. The Eagles traditionally play the run well, though Brandon Jackson to gouge them for some big runs late. Rookie safety Nate Allen was a pleasant surprise, and he could have another good game against Detroit. Asante Samuel will most likely get the assignment of guarding Johnson but, on the other side, Ellis Hobbs is a liability, and could be a target for Hill and the Lions’ offense.
Without Stafford, the Lions could struggle mightily to score points in this NFL week 2 predictions contest. Look for Philadelphia to cover the NFL spread with Michael Vick as a key weapon.
