DETROIT (AP) — The booing began early. The Detroit Lions scored on a touchdown on the game’s first snap, but it wasn’t long before the fans at Ford Field sensed trouble.

An anemic first quarter of offense set the tone. By halftime, Matthew Stafford and the Lions were trailing, and in the third quarter, they unraveled completely.

Maybe because it's another epic fail by a Bill Belichick disciple.

Matt Patricia, welcome to the wonderful head coaching world of Eric Mangini, Romeo Crenel, Charlie Weiss and Josh Daniels. You're in stellar company, dude.

I watched that game from the start to see if the Lions could really be as bad as they looked in the preseason. I think I got a pretty clear answer.
