Lions almost too much to bear; Pats survive 28-21
There really isn't much to say about the Patriots 28-21 win over Detroit yesterday. While UB and the boys did it up right with a monster pregame meal and post game party in Foxboro, the Pats almost made them barf it all up. The now 9-3 Pats came out flat and took a 13-10 lead into the half against a now 2-10 Lions team that Las Vegas thought was 13.5 points worse...The 13-10 lead was a 21-13 deficit in a blink of an eye before the Pats turned it on for a touchdown, 2 point conversion and another TD to close it out. Right now the Pats look like they're just going through the motions. Another fumble by Ben Watson, who is quickly turning into this year's biggest bust, and a pick by Asante Samuel, who is getting ready to count his cash and pick a new team, was combined with a sub par but 3 TD day from Corey Dillon. So a win is a win, but the Pats better get on top next week in Miami, where they always have trouble, if they want to stay with the pack and get a shot at the #2 seed.
