Matt Patricia beat mentor Bill Belichick, seemingly making all the right moves to help the Detroit Lions beat the New England Patriots 26-10 Sunday night.
Lions rookie running back Kerryon Johnson had his most productive game as a pro and in the process rushed for 101 yards against the Patriots on Sunday night, ending the fourth-longest 100-yard rushing drought in NFL history.
Josh Gordon, the talented but troubled wide receiver who was traded to the Patriots from the Browns last week, was inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Some NFL teams already are complaining about what can and cannot be challenged after watching Packers linebacker Clay Matthews' controversial hit on Vikings QB Kirk Cousins and Lions cornerback Tracy Walker's nullified interception of Jimmy Garoppolo.
After Sunday's loss, tight end Rob Gronkowski confirmed to reporters he considered retirement when New England explored trading him to Detroit.
These seven winless teams are playoff long shots, but it can be done. Let's sort in order of their chances of returning to respectability.
The Lions have brought back DeShawn Shead to bolster the cornerback positioin with starter Darius Slay recovering from a concussion.
The Lions are submitting a holding call that nullified an interception to the NFL for review.
Lions defensive back Quandre Diggs says a holding call against him that negated a potentially game-changing interception was "awful" because it wasn't holding and it was away from the ball. "I don't feel like you make that call at the end," Diggs said.
Jimmy Garoppolo threw two touchdown passes, Matt Breida ran for 138 yards and San Francisco's longest TD run in four seasons , and the 49ers bounced back from a season-opening loss by beating the Detroit Lions 30-27 on Sunday.
Detroit Lions All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay left Sunday's game against San Francisco with a concussion and was ruled out, while LeGarrette Blount was ejected for leaving the bench area and shoving the 49ers' Elijah Lee.
The Lions won't have T.J. Lang (back) on Sunday in San Francisco, and Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) and LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) could join him on the sideline.
Matthew Berry, Field Yates and Stephania Bell preview TNF and offer up their top storylines for Week 2.
An MRI on Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah showed no serious injuries, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ansah is hopeful he'll be ready to face San Francisco on Sunday.
First-year coach Matt Patricia also said effort by his team was not a problem in a 48-17 season-opening loss to the Jets on Monday night.
