Game Analysis & Picks
After getting selected 137th overall, Bailey Zappe makes his NFL debut for the Patriots, against former 1st overall pick Jared Goff.
The Lions are in the midst of an offensive resurgence under Dan Campbell this season, averaging 35 PPG over the first 4 weeks. Detroit scored 45 points last week without 3 key starters in Amon-Ra St. Brown, D’Andre Swift and DJ Chark. Of this trio, only St. Brown has any chance of suiting up in Foxboro.
For the Patriots, Jakobi Meyers returns from a 2 week absence as a critical weapon for Zappe, who will also be heavily reliant on the running game, against a Lions unit that ranks 3rd-worst in the NFL giving up 166 rushing YPG.
The healthier Pats at home is the play this afternoon at (-3), along with some unexpected fireworks that will land the Over (46.5).
