The New England Patriots are hoping to extend their winning streak to seven games this Sunday when they play the Detroit Lions at Gillette Stadium. Game time is 1 pm.
The Lions have the best run defense in the league so the Patriots will not be able to use running back Jonas Gray, who played a big role in last week’s win against the Indianapolis Colts. Gray, who made his first appearance on Oct. 16 because of an injury to running back Steven Ridley, had four rushing touchdowns and 199 rushing yards in the 42-20 victory.
The Pats will have to rely on receivers Rob Gronkowski, Brandon LaFell and Julian Edelman when they take on the Lions. They’ve won their last 14 games at Gillette, so hopefully the home field advantage will be with them.
I expect the Pats to beat the Detroit Lions by at least 10 points by the way they have been man-handling opponents.
