Awful Lions have allowed NFL high 6 return TDs

Great week for Eagles to heal.
The Eagles are favored by 4 1-2 points over the Lions, who they take on Sunday at what could be a soggy Lincoln Financial Field.

If the Eagles could score points it should be double figures.

Losers of three straight games, the Lions (1-3) have a superstar wide receiver in Calvin Johnson, a good quarterback in Matthew Stafford and a ton of questions.

One stat tells it all about the Lions. They've surrendered an NFL-worst six return touchdowns. Two are on kickoff returns, two on punt returns and two on fumble returns.

No other NFL team has given up more than three return scores.
