The New England Patriots (2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS) won't win an award for remaining perfect in preseason, but who doesn't like to win? The Detroit Lions (1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) are coming off a game where they didn't score a touchdown last week against Cleveland. New England travels to Ford Field to take on the Lions on Thursday at 7:30pmET from Detroit.
Tom Brady injured his knee in practice last week, scared a few people and then completed 11 of 12 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown against Tampa Bay last week.
Brady might not have Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola might be out, but he finds a way to win. Amendola, the former St. Louis Rams slot receiver, caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown pass last week.
The Patriots were up 18-10 at the half and 25-10 after three quarters. Their backups let Tampa Bay back in the game, including third-stringer Tim Tebow, who completed just 1-of-7 passes for minus-one yards.
The running game is the biggest concern on offense and Bush was expected to add some pizazz. One thing Bush does well is catch passes out of the backfield. He did have five receptions for 44 yards last week against the Browns.
