Lions vs. Eagles score: Lions lead 6-0 after 1st quarter

The Detroit Lions lead the Philadelphia Eagles 6-0 after the first quarter of Sunday's game at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Lions scored on a pair of Jason Hanson field goals in the first quarter although they were forced to settle for field goals after the offense stalled. Detroit's first field goal was set up by a 48-yard punt return by Stefan Logan. The Lions started at the Eagles' 34-yard line but were unable to pick up a first down.

Matthew Stafford completed 4-of-10 passes in the first quarter for 63 yards. His accuracy was a bit off early on as several of his throws were high. Calvin Johnson was targeted four times, catching one pass for 28 yards. Mikel Leshoure ran well early, picking up 26 yards on four carries.

While the Lions' offense has stalled at times, the Detroit defense has played well. Detroit limited Philadelphia to 29 total yards in the first quarter while also forcing one turnover. Detroit allowed just 1 rushing yard on six first-quarter attempts.
