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.”

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