"All week we heard about how good of a defense they had, how many plays they make. But we have a pretty good defense too." Titans LB Wesley Woodyard.

The last time Detroit was at Ford Field, it was dominated. On Sunday night? The Lions were dominant.

It was a surprising as it was dominant for the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. After losing their first two games, including a blowout against the Jets, beating New England seem so unlikely. But Detroit put together it's best offense of an defense of performance of the season to beat the Patriots. Now, as DL Ricky Jean-Francois put it, the Lions have to have this type of performance consistently.

When the Seahawks extended Tyler Lockett last month for three years and over $30 million, it was clear that they feel he's all the way back from his 2016 broken leg and that he's an ascending player in his fourth season. Those continue to look like good bets based on the start Lockett is off to through three games. He had four catches for 77 yards and his third touchdown of the year in Seattle's win over Dallas. The Seahawks have missed Doug Baldwin over the past two and a half games, to be sure, but Lockett has done his part in picking up the slack as their No. 1 receiver. Said Pete Carroll: "It gives us great variety when Doug gets back, that we can have both those guys. He's playing great football."

The Seahawks signed right guard D.J. Fluker this offseason because they thought he could be a difference maker in their run game. He made his Seattle debut against Dallas after missing the first two games, and according to left tackle Duane Brown, was imploring the team to run behind him. "I was really fired up to get Fluke back in there," Pete Carroll said. "You guys don't know a whole lot about D.J., but you'll learn. He's such a spirit on this club. He's so tough and he's so mentally right about loving to play this game. We just missed him the first two weeks."

Bill Belichick shares an embrace with Matt Patricia near midfield as Patriots fall to the Lions, 26-10. The Patriots were outclassed as they fall to 1-2. There is still time to turn it around, but the 2018 team is not playing up to usual Patriots standards.

The 3-0 Miami Dolphins have a 2-game lead in the AFC East. They get chance to prove they can compete with big boys of division (albeit struggling) New England Patriots in Foxboro next Sunday.

Field Yates @FieldYates

The Patriots are two games out of first place in the AFC East for the first time...since 2002.

Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

So if the Dolphins come to Foxboro next week and beat the Patriots, they'll be up 3.5 games on New England in the AFC East.

Cardinals coach Steve Wilks will decide at some point this week between Josh Rosen and Sam Bradford for who his starting quarterback will be Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
