NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Philadelphia. According to latest NFL trends, the home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams while the Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus Philadelphia. The Eagles have been highly inconsistent this season, but turnovers have been the biggest reason why their record isn’t better than 3-2. The Eagle defense has played very well through the first five weeks, especially in pass coverage and while rushing the passer. When Michael Vick doesn’t turn the ball over and stays within himself, the Eagles usually win. This is a bad Detroit team that can’t stop the run, doesn’t rush the passer as well as it should, and whose offense has yet to get on track. Lay the points with the home favorite.
