Game facts: Eagles at Lions

Mind-blowing stat:The Eagles are the first team since at least 1960 to win their first three games of the season with a rookie QB and have zero turnovers in those three games. 

Quiet win streak: Including his time as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator last year, Pederson's teams have won 13 straight regular season games.

Mathews struggling: Ryan Mathews is averaging just 3.2 yards per carry this season. He averaged 5.1 yards per carry last season, his first with the Eagles

Position battle at RB?: One of Mathews' backups, rookie Wendell Smallwood, had a season-high 17 carries against Pittsburgh in Week 4. Smallwood was above average, rushing for 4.6 yards per carry.
