PHILADELPHIA -- The Detroit Lions trailed by 10 points in the fourth quarter and all the momentum was in the other huddle. In other words, the Lions had the Philadelphia Eagles right where they wanted them. "We always feel that we're at our best when things look the worst," Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson said.

The Philadelphia Eagles have an awful lot of talent on their team, and haven’t quite figured out how to put it together, except for a few streaks here and there. The highs are high, and the lows are bottomless pits. You would think a team that boasts names like Mike Vick, DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, [...]
