Instant analysis of the Lions' takedown of the Patriots

TOM BRADY

He became the first Lions running back to rush for 100 yards since 2013. New England is 45-6 after a loss since the 2003 season, last dropping back-to-back regular-season games in 2015. The running lanes were wide open, specifically for Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson who had 16 carries for 101 yards. "Run game, pass game, we didn't do enough to advance the ball forward". Hightower was once a leader and play-caller for the Patriots, but now both of those duties looked to be mere images in the past for the aging veteran.

Sony Michel is concerned about only one number: Zero. "He's got to be involved", Brady said of White.

Johnson was productive with the ball, but Detroit's offensive line deserves a lot of the credit for the Lions' long-awaited rushing milestone. Part of the reason behind that threat from Gronkowski was that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was the only quarterback the already-legendary tight end wanted to catch passes from for the remainder of his National Football League career. "Brady's my quarterback, that's all". This led to Brady's interception midway through the final quarter when he tried to force the ball deep downfield to Phillip Dorsett. "There's nothing to make me feel good except for winning games". Dorsett didn't register a catch and Hogan had three for 31 yards.

They have become magnets for African migrants seeking a better life in Europe and refugees fleeing persecution and conflict. Spain's Foreign Minister revealed the story at a lunch in Madrid , and even impersonated Donald Trump .

On Sunday, the Patriots defense played very much as it had in its first two games.

Still, last night's game was up +18% from SNF's Game 3 last season (Washington Redskins - Oakland Raiders), which hit a then-season-low 11.6/20 at the height of the fall 2017 players protests during the national anthem, and the highest-rated Week 3 game since 2015.
