The Patriots defense called out the Lions' play before it happened

Watch Local 4 for special pre- and post-game coverage all Sunday night. Before the 8:25 p.m. kick-off, Belichick emerged from the tunnel and strutted right past the boys' stretched out arms.

Gronkowski led the Patriots with 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns a year ago across 14 games.

According to the report, Gronkowski didn't even return the Lions' phone calls, even though former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia is now the team's head coach and former Pats executive Bob Quinn is now the general manager with Detroit. New England is 45-6 after a loss since the 2003 season, last dropping back-to-back regular-season games in 2015. The Patriots surrendered 376 yards passing to Blake Bortles last Sunday and lost 31-20 at Jacksonville.

Moments after Aubameyang should have won a penalty after Jonjoe Kenny reacted to a header coming towards him by lifting his arm. Surely the club can't afford another drawn-out contract saga, with the message from many being "sign that contract or leave".

Only 20 of the Patriots' 50 catches and 187 of their 511 receiving yards this season have come by wide receivers through two games. Rookie running back Sony Michel rushed for a team-high 34 yards on 10 carries in his National Football League debut. And it certainly looked that way as the Jets dominated the Lions, 48-17.

The Dolphins are looking to snap a nine-game losing streak in MA, with Miami's last win there coming in 2008, in the famous Ronnie Brown-led Wildcat game where the running back continually took direct snaps en route to a 38-13 win.
