New England Patriots vs Detroit Lions: Game Preview & Prediction

The AFC East leading New England Patriots face-off against the NFC Central leading Detroit Lions this weekend at Gillette Stadium in a battle of contrasts. The Lions defense is built around a powerful defensive line that pressures the quarterback and stuffs the running game. The Patriots defense is built around a dynamic secondary and their athletic linebackers. On offense, the teams have different philosophies but the Lions offense has struggled since looking like a juggernaut in 2011 under former offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. New England, under offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, has continued to adapt and change on a game-by-game basis depending on the opposition.
