Three match-ups to watch as the New England Patriots take on the Detroit Lions

It’s finally the end of another long workweek and time to look forward to a stellar (not Inter-stellar) weekend of football. I think it’s safe to say that Patriots fans have come off the glorious high they were feeling Sunday night when their team manhandled the Colts and Rob Gronkowski manhandled an opposing safety into another dimension.

Robert Griffin III Goes Full Belichick, Is ‘Focused On San Francisco’ (Video)
