Lions snap counts. Some thoughts — Trey Flowers is getting a full workload, which is what should have been expected and will likely continue. Still not sure what to make of Detroit's guard rotation (Joe Dahl played the most of the three, while Graham Glasgow played 78 percent of snaps and Kenny Wiggins 31 percent). Also Kerryon Johnson is the Lions' featured back and figures to remain such (75 percent of snaps).

Jamal Agnew said during his struggles the last few weeks that "I talked to myself a lot." He was working on instilling confidence and love within himself. Said other guys on the team had also come up to him, but he needed to be able to believe in himself. "I've been here before. I've done it before. Why change anything," Agnew said he was telling himself. "You don't need to change anything. I've done it at a high level since I've been in the NFL. Just do what I've known to naturally do. Believe in yourself." Mentally, Agnew said he did need a return like Sunday -- a 100-yard kick return for a touchdown -- especially after the last two weeks. "Just to know I could still do it," Agnew said. "I mean, obviously I tell myself I can still do it and I know I can still do it, but to go out there and actually do it is different. Definitely feels good." During his issues, he watched tape of his returns from his rookie year to try and see what was maybe different. Said he saw he was more instinctive as a rookie, just "get it and go," and that he was more indecisive at the start of this season. He said he felt his team down the last few weeks, so yeah, he needed it. All throughout, though, he tried to stay confident. He did joke, though, that the last 20 or so yards during his return he thought "please don't be no penalties" that would bring it back. There weren't. It stood. And now, Agnew has the confidence again he had when he was an All-Pro two years ago.

Lions HC Matt Patricia chatting with owner Martha Ford after the team's win over Philadelphia:

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

They don't make it easy on themselves, these Detroit Lions. But in a 27-24 win over Philadelphia, the Lions saw things they can build on. There was an offense that moved well and saw big plays from their receivers and a defense that held on when they needed to. And that, less than a quarter of the way through the season, that's better than many teams in the league.

Lions' Agnew returns kickoff 100 yards for TD (0:45)
Jones lays out for Lions TD (0:26)

Pretty good first half for the Lions. Other than one drive early in the game, Detroit's defense has hemmed in Carson Wentz and forced two turnovers, leading to the team's 20-10 lead. Matt Prater has two field goals, fixing his issues from last week. Offensively, the franchise has been efficient on offense. Very few mistakes. Some well-designed plays, including the Kerryon Johnson-to-J.D. McKissic reverse. The Lions had chances to really blow this game away, though, had they turned the two Prater field goals into touchdowns. Oh, and Jamal Agnew's confidence appears to have returned after his 100-yard touchdown return. That was massive for the third-year pro who was an All-Pro as a rookie.

Johnson sails through the air for TD (0:20)

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Prater made a 25-yard field goal -- No. 277 of his career, tying him with Shayne Graham for No. 35 all-time in field goals made. It was on attempt 331, which now ties him with Kris Brown for No. 43 all-time in that category. Prater also gives the Lions a 17-10 lead.

Mike Daniels questionable to return for the Lions with a foot injury. This is a homecoming game for Daniels, who grew up just across the river in South Jersey. Not sure when he injured the foot.

Jarrad Davis and Jahlani Tavai are taking snaps together during pregame warmups for the Lions in 7-on-7. This is going to be Davis' first game this season.

Lions inactives: DL Da'Shawn Hand, QB Jeff Driskel, RB Paul Perkins, CB Amani Oruwariye, OG Beau Benzschawel, OL Oday Aboushi, WR Travis Fulgham. That means Jarrad Davis & Taylor Decker are active

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

The Lions have signed WR Marvin Hall and waived WR Chris Lacy — the presumed No. 4 WR out of training camp. Hall comes up from Detroit's practice squad. The Lions signed DE Jonathan Wynn to the practice squad.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Da'Shawn Hand (elbow) now OUT for Lions on Sunday against Philly. He did a little more in practice this week but seems like it'll be another week for him at least. He has yet to play this year.

Five players questionable for Detroit:

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Possible good news for the Lions — LT Taylor Decker and LB Jarrad Davis participated in media portion of practice Friday. Still see what injury report says and how they react to work but look to be trending in the right direction for Sunday.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Patricia said Jarrad Davis adds a layer "of comfort and calmness" in the middle of the defense when he's out there. Said they are pushing toward a good practice Friday and see what happens Sunday. Felt Devon Kennard did a good job in his absence handling some calls and also giving them some leadership in the defense. But getting Davis back would be big.
