The Pats have shown the kind of versatility in the last two challenging games that assures the Lions that wionning or covering at Foxboro may prove a mission impossible. Twice in a row the Pats destroyed opposition by 22 point margin once going all in the air (against the Broncios) and then demonstrating a ridiculously great ground game in Indy. The quarterbacks – Brady and Stafford stand a distance from each other although the Lion is not bad at all. Only compared to Brady his stats look bad.
The key to the Lion’s success lasy within the best defense in a league but an average points they score per game compared with the Pats stands at 18-32.So, the only chance the Lions stand is slowing the game down playing it in a baseball mode. Breaking the Pats concentration on defense by a long snaps and lots of rushing. The Pats may cooperate with that scheme for some time but will be exploding from time to time and I do not see the Lions holding the game for long before Brady will be finding Bronkowski.
