Thoughts after 3rd quarter Lions, Eagles

- Both quarterbacks have adjusted much better to the weather conditions and are throwing the ball better. Nick Foles looked like a different QB altogether on the Eagles' scoring drive. Matthew Stafford has started to make his classic throws, despite the snow. Neither team has been able to rush the passer. The QBs might very well decide this game when it seemed unlikely earlier.
- It took a Lions' awhile to find a quality returner after Stefan Logan lost it, but Jeremy Ross has been getting it done. He's come close to breaking a couple returns in recent weeks. It's not a surprise he broke one sooner instead of later. But today? Under these conditions? It could have come at a better time.
- The biggest factor in this game by far is the play of the Lions' defensive line. After couple subpar games in a row, they have played impressive the last two games under entirely different circumstances vs. the Packers and Eagles. Linebackers Stephen Tulloch and DeAndre Levy have played extraordinarily well, too.
