The Philadelphia Eagles apparently don’t like playing football until the fourth quarter. For the second week in a row, they were absolutely stonewalled in the first half. They scored just seven points all game until the fourth quarter in their loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.
However, they weren’t as heartbroken as the Detroit Lions were last week. They were marching down the field to grab a huge upset win over the Los Angeles Rams and pulled out so many trick plays, but in the end, Jalen Ramsey intercepted Jared Goff and their fate was sealed. This game should be a great fight between two scrappy teams, let’s see what player props are available at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Eagles vs Lions Player Props
Jalen Hurts Under 254.5 Passing Yards
Jalen Hurts has simply not been trusted with the ball in his hands all that much this season. In his last game against the Las Vegas Raiders, he completed just 18 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns without an interception. However, the majority of those stats were piled up in the fourth quarter alone, as the team scored just seven points in the first three-quarters of action.
Hurts hasn’t had many opportunities to get big passing numbers yet this season, usually hovering around the 200-yard mark. He should stay there once again even though he is up against a pretty weak Detroit Lions defense.
Jalen Hurts passing yards since Week 5:
- Week 7 vs. Las Vegas: 236 passing yards
- Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay: 115 passing yards
- Week 5 vs. Carolina: 198 passing yards
Jared Goff Under 4.5 Rushing Yards
As random as this may seem, Jared Goff does usually take off about once a game. Granted, he normally doesn’t get very far, but he isn’t one to shy away from the chance.
That shouldn’t happen in this game as the Eagles front seven is stacked with talent that will be determined to keep him in front of them. He ran once last game for three yards, and that should be the longest he goes for another week or so. Don’t expect him to break loose for one here.
Jake Elliott Over 1.5 Field Goals Made
Jake Elliott didn’t get a single opportunity to sink a field goal in the team’s last game against the Raiders. They were struggling mightily against a surprisingly good Raiders defense and by the time they reached the fourth quarter all they needed was touchdowns.
Elliott should be heavily involved in this game as the Lions don’t have the best secondary, but the Eagles don’t have the best offense. It should be a tug of war game that could be centered around mid-field. Elliott will have a good amount of chances to drop in two field goals.
