Detroit Lions 26 – 10 New England Patriots

After two pretty awful looking games, the Lions were facing the New England Patriots.  Exactly what the doctor did NOT order.

The Patriots were coming off of a loss to Jacksonville on the road and the word was that quarterback Tom Brady was irritated.  And that’s never a good sign. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah was ruled out for the game. Cornerback Darius Slay‘s status was unsure going into the game due to an injury from last week.

The Patriots were also dealing with some injuries of their own.  Safety Patrick Chung, CB Eric Rowe, and defensive lineman Trey Flowers were all out for the game.  So, the Lions actually had a chance.  Slim, but still a chance. It was amazing, actually, once the game got started to see what was taking place.

The Detroit Lions pride report–week 3 preview

Lions fans, the Matt Patricia era has not gotten off to a good start.  The veterans are potentially unhappy, injuries are starting to add up, and the run defense has been abysmal.  The run game remains troubled at best.

Despite all that, the Lions may have a chance to beat the New England Patriots. Granted, a lot of things would have to go their way, but it could happen.

The Lions in Oakland

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield//@Mom23RN

The much anticipated Matt Patricia era mostly officially begins tonight!  The Lions have made their way out to Oakland to take on the Raiders in their first preseason matchup under new head coach Patricia.   We all know that these are mostly scrimmages, but here are some things that I’ll be watching out for tonight.

Kerryon Johnson  Johnson was the 2nd round pick of the Lions in this past draft.  He’s a running back out of Auburn, and man, have the reports been good on him coming out of camp.  Anyone who’s watched a Lions broadcast in the past year or two knows that the Lions haven’t had a 100 yard rusher in a trillion years.

Could Kerryon be the one to break that?  As of now, it looks pretty good.  He’s been hardworking, playing different roles, such as pass catching, and pass protection.  He’s also gotten tips from former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount.   Hoping we get to see some of that tonight.

Why the Lions are doing things right: An offseason story

Official Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

It’s July now, and finally, the speculation can turn into reality.  Will linebacker Jarad Davis be a bust?  Will rookie running back Kerryon Johnson be the Detroit Lions first 100-yard rusher in about a jillion years?  AND…the one that’s been on my mind for the longest:  Do people feel that Matt Patricia can make a difference with this team?

No, I’m not doubting the hire at all.  I guess what I’m thinking is this.  Back in April (pre-draft), I was at an event, and as tends to happen when I meet people, the topic of conversation turned to football.

We started talking Lions, and he asked me if I felt that the Lions are really going to be THAT much improved with this hire.  I, of course, said yes, and he looked at me a little funny.
