Week 3: vs Detroit Lions

All RB vs DET

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Two games into the 2019 season, only one thing is evident in the Philadelphia Eagles' backfield: it will continue to be a running-back-by-committee approach. Rookie Miles Sanders leads the team in rushing attempts, but he has been mostly unimpressive during his time on the field, mustering just 2.5 yards-per-carry to this point. Another offseason acquisition, Jordan Howard, has been far more impressive, even if his efficiency levels are merely league-average. Philadelphia identified the running back position as a position of need over the offseason following a disastrous 2018 season running the football. The Eagles undoubtedly expected more return on their offseason investment at the running back position, and a shift in touches away from Sanders and towards Howard shortly would not come as a surprise. One of the league's best offensive lines should produce far more impressive rushing numbers than what the Eagles have totaled over the last 13 months. The alarms will be sounding in Philadelphia's backfield if the team continues to struggle to get the ground game going. The Detroit Lions finished the 2018 season with a top-10 run defense in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns allowed. The early weeks of 2019, however, have not been nearly as strong for the Lions' front-seven. Through the first two games of the 2019 season, the Detroit Lions have allowed a stunning 5.2 yards-per-carry (26th in the NFL) and at least 112 rushing yards in both games. Detroit's struggles have coincided directly with the struggles of noted run-stopping defensive linemen Damon "Snacks" Harrison. Harrison was acquired midway through the 2018 season and immediately bolstered Detroit's run-defense as part of an elite defensive tackle duo alongside A'Shawn Robinson. While Robinson has carried over his top-notch run-stopping from 2018 into the 2019 season, Harrison has not. However, Harrison will almost certainly get back on track soon. Following six straight seasons as the NFL's best run-stopping defensive tackles, two sub-par games from Damon Harrison are more likely a random occurrence than anything signaling an emerging trend. The true cause for concern on Detroit's defense is at the linebacker position. The linebacking corps has struggled mightily defending the run in 2019, in part due to the absence of Jarrad Davis. Davis may potentially return from a preseason ankle injury here in week three, which will undoubtedly bolster the team's run defense. If Davis is unable to go, and the Lions field the same three starters from weeks one and two, that could spell trouble. Christian Jones has posted astonishingly-poor numbers in run defense, and Devon Kennard has regressed mightily following a respectable showing in 2018. Davis' status leading up to a week three battle with one of the NFL's best offensive lines will be vital to evaluating this matchup. It's looking like he will return which is a significant increase to the Lions this week.

Our View: Clement doesn't do much on offense in the Eagles jam-packed backfield. However, he does work as the team's kick returner. Rookie Miles Sanders took over after Clement was banged up on Sunday night.
