    Please post your comments, knee jerk reactions, and insightful observations about tonight's Patriots 3rd pre-season game vs Detriot, on this thread.

    The game will be on TV tonight on the Patriots TV Network starting at 7:30PM.

    Patriots vs. Lions Broadcast Information Those of you on the West Coast can fly to Hawaii:D

    This is the game that is suppose to be played more like a regular season game, or so they say.

    Let hope for a good game with no injuries.

    Looking forward to seeing the young receivers, as well as the older but unproven guys like Edelman and Vereen. With Amendola presumably out tonight, this should be a great opportunity for those guys to step up.

    Apparently Wilfork is dealing with something.

    I'll be following the game through this thread tonight and taping it as it airs later. Hope for a good game with no injuries.

    According to @JosinaAnderson (via Jeff Howe) Calvin Johnson isn't playing tonight.

    -Thompkins vs. Dobson, the deciding game for who will start across Amendola week 1.

    -Who deserves to be TE1 and TE2 when Gronk returns: Ballard, Sudfeld, or Fells?

    Sounds like a last-minute thing. The Lions have confirmed it though. That has to be disappointing for coaches wanting a better look at the secondary.

    It should be interesting how Bolden plays tonight.

    Their first team offense was awful last game without Calvin in there. Lets temper our enthusiasm if the Pats secondary look like world beaters tonight.

    Boy, I think I speak for everyone when I say that I hope it's VERY minor.

    If there's any question, they should just let him rest until the opener like Amendola will presumably be doing.

    Dowling is not playing this game. He was taping his ankle in the lockerroom and pulled a muscle in his back.

    Sooooo close to making it back on the field.

    Where'd the Pats-Lions game thread go?

    I can't find it on the front page. . . .

    At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if Ebner ends up on IR. :(

    Still no Ebner. :mad:

    At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if Ebner ends up on IR. :(

    BTW. . . . did this thread "disappear" for anyone else?

    Here is a list of those who Reiss thinks will not play tonight.

    Also,
    On the other end of the spectrum, both safety Devin McCourty and guard Dan Connolly are dressed for the first time this preseason. Each underwent offseason shoulder surgery that has limited them thus far in training camp.

    I'm actually disappointed Calvin Johnson isn't playing.
