Detroit Lions 26 – New England Patriots 10
I have a confession to make – I didn’t watch the game live. I was at a Def Leppard/Journey concert in San Diego. That made watching it today, after knowing the outcome, a LOT harder.
As Patriots’ fans, we’ve been spoiled – we’ve seen a whole lot of winning. When the Patriots have a bad game, there’s no one better at coming back the next week and looking like a completely different team.
So the Patriots starting the season with a 1-2 record is a bitter pill to swallow for us. Most of us were sure that after the loss to the Jaguars, the Patriots would bounce back and walk out of Detroit with a win. But what we forgot is that Matt Patricia, now head coach of the Detroit Lions, knows the Patriots and he knows them well.
