The New England Patriots are looking for their first win of the preseason and they’ll get their third try against the Detroit Lions with both teams likely to play their starters. The Lions hold a 6-2 edge over the Patriots in the preseason according to the team media guide
The Patriots will hope to find some offensive rhythm with QB Tom Brady and his likely cohort of WR Brandin Cooks, WR Julian Edelman, WR Chris Hogan, and TE Rob Gronkowski. We should also see the debut of RB Mike Gillislee.
The New England defense will hopefully have more success against the Lions starters than they had against the Texans starters as the team tries to find a solid rotation of pass rushers.
