DETROIT — When the Detroit Lions started training camp with high hopes, they envisioned games like this.
Detroit overwhelmed Tom Brady with an aggressive pass rush and raced out to a comfortable lead behind a terrific performance by Matthew Stafford in a 34-10 win over the New England Patriots on Saturday night. When Brady wasn't being chased by Ndamukong Suh, he was trying to avoid Cliff Avril, Corey Williams and the rest of the Lions' defensive line.
Detroit is 3-0 in the preseason. The question now is whether the Lions can repeat this kind of impressive performance when the regular season begins next month.
