Go time.

A post shared by New England Patriots (@patriots) on

In the first quarter, the Patriots new-look defense showed their presence early.

Quarterback Brian Hoyer hooked up with rookie N’Keal Harry for a highlight first catch as a Patriot.

The Patriots offense got on the board first as receiver Maurice Harris hauled in a 14 yard touchdown reception from Hoyer.

7-0 Patriots after one quarter of play.

In the second quarter, Hoyer continued his hot start, finding Jakobi Meyers for his first of two touchdown hauls on the night.

The Patriots defense continued to pressure the Lions and John Simon forced a fumble in the process.

Rookie Jarrett Stidham entered the game for Hoyer and the offense continued to shine as Meyers again found the end zone.

20-0 New England at the half following a missed two-point conversion attempt.

The stats were ugly for Matt Patricia’s Lions.

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed a 37 yard field goal before the half…or was it Stephen Gostowski?

Don’t tell Lions fans it’s just a preseason game.

In the second half the Patriots picked up right where they left off, extending their lead to 28-0 early in the third quarter. A second two-point attempt was good.

One Lions fan had some unfortunate explaining to do after the game.

After three quarters and a four touchdown lead there was plenty of praise to go around for the 2019 Patriots debut.

Stephen Gostkowski tacked on a field goal to open the fourth quarter to push the lead to 31-0 and the Patriots defense did the rest to close out the evening.
