Join the conversation during Week 3 of the Detroit Lions’ preseason.

NFL: New York Jets at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

In less than an hour the Detroit Lions will kick off against the New England Patriots for the third, and most important, preseason game. This isn’t the first time the Lions and Patriots have faced off in the dress rehearsal game. In fact, just four years ago the two teams met in Week 3 of the preseason.

The Lions dominated that day, winning 40-9. Of course, the Lions only went on to win seven games that year, while the Patriots won 12. So take tonight’s game with a grain of salt.

That being said, this will be our first extended look of the first-team offense and defense and that’s exciting enough to warrant some hype. To get you ready for kickoff, here’s some of our pregame coverage.
