Three and Out: Lions preview; why Birds may start Minshew in 2021
Eagles-Lions game preview: Why the Birds shouldn't look past Detroit. Should Gardner Minshew start and are more trades on the way?

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Looking to snap a two-game losing streak, the Philadelphia Eagles travel to Detroit to face the winless Lions.

Last week the Birds fell to the Raiders, 33-22, in a game that wasn't as close as the score would indicate.

While the Lions have yet to win a game, they have been competitive in several games. Plus Detroit has taken the last three in the matchup vs. the Eagles, so the Birds shouldn't take this team lightly.

Ron Jaworski says to expect gimmicks and gadgets with the Lions desperate to end an 11-game losing streak.

Jaws breaks down the matchup, whether it's Minshew Mania time, and if more trades are on the way in this week's Three and Out.

1st Down: Could we see Gardner Minshew replace Jalen Hurts at QB this year?

2nd Down: Why fans shouldn't overlook the Lions

3rd Down: Will the Eagles make more trades?

Player to Watch on Lions: D'Andre Swift

Player to Watch on Eagles: Receivers getting chunk plays

Jaws' Prediction: Eagles 27, Lions 24
