The Detroit Lions will meet Michael Vick and co. in the city of brotherly love on Sunday afternoon.

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Philadelphia Eagles will play host to the Detroit Lions on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

Philadelphia comes in with a 3-2 record and a share of the NFC East lead. The Eagles have been an inconsistent bunch thus far, but find themselves in a solid postion as October rolls along.

Michael Vick has been maddening at times and brilliant at others, throwing for 1,321 yards in the first five games but also tossing six interceptions. LeSean McCoy has been typically excellent, gaining 437 yards on the season while averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

On the injury front, Riley Cooper (collarbone), Jason Avant (wrist) and Akeem Jordan (hamstring) are all probable.

It's been a different story for the boys from the Motor City. Detroit has been a major disappointment to this point, coming into Sunday's tilt at 1-3. The Lions' only win was a last-second thriller on opening day against the St. Louis Rams.

The biggest problem for Jim Schwartz's group is the lack of a rushing game, which ranks 24th in the league.

Detroit's only injury of note is Cliff Avril, who's questionable with a back issue.
