The Philadelphia Eagles and the Detroit Lions kick off their opening game both hoping to start off the 2022 NFL season with a win. The Eagles have a winning record of 8-6 at Detroit. The last time these two teams met, the Eagles played one of their best games of the 2021 season, prevailing with a 44-6 win on Halloween. This win helped vault the Eagles forward for the rest of the season, winning seven of nine games, and eventually reach the playoffs.
When it comes to the Detroit Lions, their No. 7 overall draft pick last season, Penei Sewell had a good finish to his rookie campaign for the team. Head Coach Dan Campbell wants to be a physical team on offense and defense, and Sewell will need to continue his ascent for that to happen. If he is able to continue his development, the run game behind running back D’Andre Swift will be a featured component in the Lions’ game plan.
With rookies Penei Sewell and Amon-Ra St. Brown coming on strong to finish 2021, the offense looks to move forward. Adding a big play receiver like D.J. Chark in free agency and a speedster like Jameson Williams adds dimensions the team was missing in 2021. On defense, the Lions will hope former first-round cornerback Jeff Okudah returns healthy from the Achilles tear he suffered in 2021.
We’ll have an exciting matchup heading into this game as one of the highlights. Jordan Mailata comes in as the starting left tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles. He will be one of the offensive linemen tasked with battling against the Lions rookie No. 2 overall draft pick Aidan Hutchinson. Last season at Michigan, Hutchinson proved himself by becoming a Heisman Trophy runner-up. With his help, Michigan made the College Football Playoff for the first time.
