Come hang out with us for the first two quarters of Lions vs. Eagles.

The Detroit Lions are missing key players this week—well, even more key players than normal. Running back Jamaal Williams is out with a nagging thigh injury while starting nickel AJ Parker is scratched with a neck injury suffered last week. On top of that, the Lions made a curious move by scratching tight end Darren Fells—the team’s clear No. 2 tight end.

That all being said, this week still presents a favorable matchup for the 0-7 Lions. The Philadelphia Eagles are 2-5 and trending in the wrong direction. Head coach Nick Sirianni is under fire, because despite having a solid roster of talent, the Eagles are undoubtedly underperforming.

So will the Lions finally get in the win column before their bye week? Come hang out with us for the first two quarters of the game. But before kickoff starts at 1 p.m. ET, check out all of our pregame coverage:
