PHILADELPHIA — It wasn’t pretty Sunday, just like it hasn’t been all year. But the Detroit Lions are still among the NFL’s unbeatens.
Jamal Agnew returned a kick 100 yards for a touchdown and the Lions got a key fourth-down stop with 41 seconds to play after allowing a blocked field goal to beat the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, 27-24.

The Eagles cut a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit
