Detroit Lions vs. New England Patriots, the most anticipated game of this week, the Lions without victories and will play against the Patriots at home with Matt Patricia as headcoach, it is not a dream, it is the harsh reality. The Lions need to win, Patricia has the formula, but apparently the team still does not adapt to the offensive strategy to win the games. The Patriots are not playing well as in past seasons.
Detroit Lions: Today we can win.
The Lions need a victory to get out of the hole 0-2, one of the worst scenarios for a season is to enter the dirty hole of two losses and zero wins in a season. The problems for the Lions began with Patricia’s debut in the first game, 17-48 at home against the Jets is too big a humiliation, but mistakes are paid dearly in the NFL. The second game could be a victory but again the team lost with another team that was relatively easy and also has a new project this season as the 49ers 27-30.
Matthew Stafford has not really played badly, 61.6% in full passes is not a bad average, the problem is the lack of control he suffered against the Jets and the 4 interceptions that should not have happened. Stafford had his best numbers of the season against the 49ers, 64% of passes completed with 34-53 and 347 yards. With Patricia things have not been as the fans expected, but in the second game the best were more obvious in the offense.
New England Patriots: We are capable of everything.
The Patriots know that the Lions are looking for their first win of the season, but the Patriots also need a victory to have a positive record and go up to 2-1-0. The defeat against the Jaguars left the team with self-esteem on the floor. Losing a game for more than 10 points on the road is not common for the Patriots, that has not happened for a long time. Against the Lions the team will not have Patrick Chung and Trey Flowers available.
Tom Brady, the numbers for him have remained in a good state, but Brady needs to improve much more if the team wants to reach another superbowl this year. 67.6% in completed passes, 511 total yards, 5 touchdowns and only one interception so far. Patricia knows many secrets of the Patriots offense and that will be used in her favor with the Lions and against Brady.
