Our staff makes their picks for the Lions’ Week 3 matchup.

The Detroit Lions started the week as pretty heavy underdogs against the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite holding a slightly better 1-0-1 record than the Eagles (1-1) and coming off a big upset win at home, Detroit started the week as eight-point underdogs.

However, as the week progressed, the line started to shift towards the Lions. Whether it was due to the Eagles’ lengthy injury report or heavy betting on Detroit’s side, the betting line has dropped to as low as 4.5 in some places.

But what does the Pride of Detroit staff think about this week’s matchup? We already know On Paper gave the very, very slight edge to Philadelphia, while Justin Simon’s Cheat Sheet scouting report tips the scales in Detroit’s favor.

Here’s a look at what the rest of the staff thinks.

Alex Reno (1-1): 17-16 Lions
Jeremy Reisman (1-1): 24-21 Eagles
Mansur Shaheen (1-1): 23-14 Lions
Hamza Baccouche (1-1): 21-17 Lions
Levi Blue (1-1): 27-10 Lions
Justin Simon (1-1): 20-17 Lions
Mike Payton (1-1): Lions win
Andrew Kato (0-1): 20-17 Eagles
Kellie Rowe (0-1): 20-17 Lions
John Whiticar (0-2): 23-17 Eagles
Chris Perfett (0-2): 15-12 Eagles
Jerry Mallory (0-2): 23-13 Lions
Ryan Mathews (0-2): 27-24 Lions
Kyle Yost (0-2): 26-21 Eagles
