Taking On His Old Boss [VIDEO]
It's teacher vs pupil tonight when Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots meet Matt Patricia and the Detroit Lions in the Sunday Night football game.
There are many storylines leading up to this one.
Injuries will keep DL Trey Flowers and S Patrick Chung out of the Pats lineup.
And, the WR Josh Gordon watch continues. Will he play after joining the Patriots just this week.
Tom Brady talked about that during his Friday presser...
The fact of the matter is both teams need a win. The Patriots are coming off that loss to Jacksonville. The Lions need the win because Patricia is feeling some heat after starting out with three straight losses.
