DETROIT - Jason Peters exited the Eagles' 45-14 loss to the Detroit Lions in the first quarter Thursday with a left ankle injury. He did not return. The Eagles moved Lane Johnson to left tackle and inserted Dennis Kelly at right tackle. The offensive line missed Peters. The Eagles allowed six sacks and could open space for only 68 rushing yards. "I got rolled up," Peters said. "I thought I could come back. And then when I started putting pressure on it, it was just too weak to try to go out there.

DETROIT - To pull a weed and make sure it dies, you have to get to the root. The Eagles are a garden full of wild plants. You don't succumb to the struggling Lions, 45-14, four days after falling to the mediocre Buccaneers, 45-17, without having several issues with your team. The questions, then, for the owner of that team are: Do you look at your garden and think that some Weed B Gon will do the trick, or do you come to the conclusion that the soil needs to be turned over and it's time to start anew?

Chip Kelly The Eagles hit the nadir of Kelly's tenure. He's been taking a lot of criticism for his decisions as a general manager, and rightfully so, but the Eagles aren't a well-coached team right now. Ill-timed penalties, drops, turnovers and missed tackles are the hallmarks. Bill Davis This was easily his worst performance as defensive coordinator this year. It might have been his worst since getting the job. Davis has six games to get his unit back on track or he could end up being an offseason sacrificial lamb.

Eagles tight end Zach Ertz suffered a concussion in the second quarter of the Eagles' 45-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The injury placed Ertz in the concussion protocol, which could put Ertz's status in doubt for the Eagles game against Detroit on Thanksgiving. The Eagles have only two days of practice before they leave for the game. The play occurred when Ertz tried hurdling a defender on a third down in the second quarter. Ertz fell on his neck and was taken into the locker room for evaluation.

1. Indefensible: Reluctant to blitz rookie quarterback Jameis Winston (19-29, 246 yards), the Eagles (4-6) saw him complete touchdown passes to five different receivers in the 45-17 loss to the Bucs (5-5). Reluctant to tackle running backs, Eagles linebackers were blocked out of, run over by and eluded by Buccaneers all afternoon. The Bucs finished with 283 rushing yards, the most surrendered by the Birds this season. The Eagles have allowed 99 rushing yards or more seven times. They have lost six of those and needed overtime to win the other.

If there was a play this season that epitomized the notion that some Eagles were giving less than 100 percent for Chip Kelly, it actually didn't come in Sunday's utterly pathetic, 45-17 drubbing at the hands of the Buccaneers, although there were plenty of candidates. It came last week against the Dolphins, a week after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys and seemingly had momentum for salvaging their season. It came after they had taken a 16-3 lead and as they were driving for what appeared to be another touchdown.

JASON PETERS started at left tackle Sunday and seemed to play reasonably well. I'll take "Things that seemed really important around 1 p.m. Sunday that were forgotten by sundown" for $600, Alex. The mystery of Peters' back didn't get much clearer, but even though he sat out the final minutes of the Eagles' blowout loss to Tampa Bay, Peters said he felt fine after the game. Presumably he is a go for Thursday at Detroit. Really, the Eagles could have played Bernadette Peters at left tackle Sunday.

WE WERE WRONG about this team at the start of this season. We were wrong about this team midway through, too. The Eagles are not a mediocre team. A mediocre team is still likely to win the NFC East. They are bad. Unofficially, officially, any measurement you choose to use. Of their four victories, not one has come against a team with a current winning record. Their six losses have come via a smorgasbord of meltdowns. Penalties one week. You can't turn the ball over (fill in the blank)

There's a player on the Eagles with a concussion who has not been cleared to play, and his expected absence on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have a major effect on the offense. The player is Ryan Mathews. Although Sam Bradford's concussion captured much of the attention this week, Mathews is also out with a concussion. The Eagles' productive No. 2 running back has not even made an appearance on the sideline during practice, and it does not appear that he will play on Sunday.

THE EAGLES need to run the ball effectively Sunday against Tampa Bay, to take a little pressure off backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, who presumably will make his first start of the season, with Sam Bradford still navigating the NFL's concussion protocol process. There are at least three reasons why this might be a problem, however. 1 Ryan Mathews, the Eagles' most effective back (75 carries, 427 yards, 5.7 yards per carry) is out with a concussion suffered Sunday against Miami.
