The Eagles entered the half dominating an inferior Lions team.
The drubbing only got worse later in the game as the Lions seemed entirely unable to keep up with the Eagles offense or defense.
The game got so out of hand the Eagles put in their back-end guys who would otherwise not see the field outside special teams into the game.
12 carries for 60 yards made Scott the top running back in this one, who established a run game and gave Hurts room to run and throw. Scott also registered two touchdowns, both hard fought through tackles to break the goal line.
With Eric Wilson a healthy scratch, Edwards had to step up and play many more snaps, though he remains a two-down back for the most part. He paced the team with 13 tackles (two for loss) and registered a QB hit of his own. All respect to the DL, but Edwards was impressive in his role today.
