The Detroit Lions enter their Week 8 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles as the only winless team in the NFL. With first-year head coach Dan Campbell and new quarterback Jared Goff, the Lions are still looking for more cohesion and chemistry.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles are 2-5 and their first-year head coach, Nick Sirianni, continues to wax poetic metaphors about flowers that no one seems to understand, likely including his players.

Nick Sirianni used a picture of a flower in his Eagles team meeting today to illustrate growth 🌱“the results aren't there right now, but what's going on here is that there's growth under the soil… it's coming through the ground, and the roots are growing out.” https://t.co/q6JuNpC70Z

Here is the injury report and the starting lineup for the Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles.
