DETROIT: The running game figures to be an afterthought again for the NFL's most pass-happy team. Reggie Bush is the new No. 1 back, but he was brought in more for his receiving skills and ability in space. His carries will come working off the passing game and likely be a lot of delays and draws, and often out of the shotgun. Mikel Leshoure, a tentative plodder who was a disaster last season, will hopefully perform better in his second season back from a torn Achilles. Joique Bell has a chance to push Leshoure for playing time, but his strength is more in the passing game, making him the likely odd man out. Expect a lot more of Matthew Stafford sitting back in shotgun with three and four receivers. Calvin Johnson is obviously the focal point, often working up the seam and breaking off when safeties sit deep. With no reliable No. 2 receiver, Brandon Pettigrew is Stafford's second option, working the middle of the field while Nate Burleson acts as a third receiver. Bush will have a big role in the screen game and figures to flex out to the slot at times. Ryan Broyles remains a question mark coming off a torn ACL, and Mike Thomas must prove he can make plays downfield. Leshoure figures to take the reps when they get down near the goal line, though Stafford runs the occasional sneak. The Lions took a gamble on fifth overall pick DE Ezekiel Ansah and added newcomer DL Jason Jones from Seattle to bolster a weak pass rush (34 sacks, T-20th in NFL). Former Texans SS Glover Quin adds toughness to the secondary that is still searching for a serviceable No. 2 corner behind top CB Chris Houston. They did little else to improve their sagging defense that allowed 24+ points in each of their final eight games and had multiple takeaways just five times in 2012. Detroit has the 2nd-hardest NFL schedule in 2013.
PHILADELPHIA: There's been much conjecture about whether or not new head coach Chip Kelly's frenetic Oregon offense will translate to the NFL. But most likely, he's not bringing that offense to Philly. The Eagles will surely play up-tempo, and they'll likely mix some read option stuff in, in an attempt to get LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown into space. And Michael Vick will get to run a few keepers. But new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur is from the Andy Reid coaching tree and will surely bring a more traditional touch to this offense. McCoy will take the majority of the work, but Brown will also get plenty of reps. The Eagles will try to use tempo and play-action to create confusion in their passing game. Expect a lot of two-tight end looks with Vick on the move more often than not. It's unclear if Brent Celek will hold off James Casey and Zach Ertz, two tight ends Kelly brought in. DeSean Jackson figures to be even more of an all-or-nothing deep threat than he was during the Andy Reid years. Jeremy Maclin, if healthy, should be their No. 1 receiver with the ability to be effective in a variety of roles. The backs will also be featured heavily in the screen game. The Eagles figure to get a little more pass-heavy in the red zone, where their multi-tight end sets will create play-action opportunities. The Eagles hope new defensive coordinator Billy Davis can improve the team's pathetic 13 takeaways in 2012 (tied for last in NFL). Davis' 3-4 based scheme will operate in multiple looks with several blitz packages. It will feature many new faces, such as mountainous NT Isaac Sopoaga, pass-rushing OLB Connor Barwin and possibly four new starters in the secondary -- CB Bradley Fletcher, CB Cary Williams FS Kenny Phillips and SS Pat Chung. Two hard-nosed linebackers remain in ILB DeMeco Ryans and OLB Trent Cole.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PA SPORTSTICKER PRO FOOTBALL PREVIEW (DETROIT-PHILADELPHIA) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*Lions-Eagles Preview* ======================


Nothing quiets a quarterback controversy quite like wins. But 19 touchdowns and zero interceptions certainly helps, too.

Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles go for their fifth straight victory Sunday against the NFC North-leading Detroit Lions, an opponent which could present his toughest starting assignment yet.

"He's been a good decision type guy," Detroit safety Glover Quin said of Foles. "Not making mistakes and keeping his team in the game."

The Lions (7-5) head to Philadelphia after an extended break following their best defensive effort of the year in a 40-10 win over Green Bay on Thanksgiving. It was the fewest points they've surrendered in nearly two years, and the Packers' 126 yards of offense were the lowest by a Detroit opponent since Cincinnati had 95 on Nov. 22, 1992.

"It's just a performance we always believed we could have," defensive tackle C.J. Mosley said. "... We've got to string performances like this together."

Detroit has achieved season highs in sacks in consecutive weeks with seven against the Packers and four against Tampa Bay on Nov. 24.

While the Lions' pass rush will be on Foles' mind, the signal-caller is no longer burdened with an uncertain future.

"Because I've been asked the question a thousand times, so I will say he is the starting quarterback for the next thousand years here," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "If I'm wrong next week, then I'm wrong next week."

The constant questions might not always have easy answers, but Foles' play has simplified Kelly's short-term decision. The second-year quarterback is 5-1 as a starter this season, and he's thrown all but three of the Eagles' passes over the four-game winning streak after the team had been regularly shuffling at the position.

His season passer rating of 125.2 is tops in the NFL. Foles is one away from tying Peyton Manning's record of 20 TD passes to start a season without an interception, which was set this season. He's already set an Eagles' record for most passes without an interception (233), snapping teammate Michael Vick's previous mark of 224 set in 2010.

"I learned through making mistakes and throwing interceptions in high school, in college, and in practice," Foles said. "I try to push it in practice and test my boundaries and see what throws are capable against certain defenses. It's through a lot of mistakes that I've learned that."

The Eagles (7-5) kept pace with Dallas atop the NFC East with last Sunday's 24-21 home win over Arizona. Foles tossed three touchdowns, completing 21 of 34 attempts for 237 yards.

"He's getting better and better and making good decisions," Kelly said.

It's not just Foles. Philadelphia has turned the ball over once in the last four games while taking it away nine times. The drastic swing has corrected its turnover differential to plus-7.

The Eagles will try to win three straight at home in a single season for the first time since 2010. The victory over Arizona came a week after they beat Washington to snap a franchise-worst, 10-game home losing streak.

That slide began with a 26-23 loss to the Lions on Oct. 14, 2012, with Matthew Stafford besting Vick and throwing for 311 yards in his first career matchup with Philadelphia. The Eagles had won the previous six meetings.

Detroit overcame two more interceptions by Stafford last week, giving him 10 in five games since Oct. 27 - tied with Cincinnati's Andy Dalton for most in the league.

The Lions have committed 17 turnovers during that stretch while forcing just four, though they have three wins in that span and all have been against playoff contenders. They have a one-game division lead on Chicago, which hosts Dallas on Monday night, and own the tiebreaker over the Bears.

"We just need to take better care of the football," said Stafford, facing a Philadelphia defense which has seven INTs in the last four games. "If we can eliminate that, I feel real good about where we are."

Detroit ran for a season-best 241 yards on Thanksgiving, inching closer to its first division title since 1993 after losing consecutive games for the first time this year.

"It's easy when you lose a couple games in a row, particularly the fashion that we lost, for people to say, 'Here we go again,'" coach Jim Schwartz said. "I'm sure there were some people that were saying that, but they weren't on our sideline."

Reggie Bush had 182 total yards last week, including 117 on the ground, as the Lions improved to 5-0 when he runs for at least 90.

They're 4-0 against NFC East opponents since the start of 2011.
