Lions Pound Mistake-Prone Patriots 40-9
Matthew Stafford completed 12-of-25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, as the Detroit Lions pounded the New England Patriots, 40-9, on Thursday in the third preseason game for both teams.
Reggie Bush caught five passes for 103 yards, while backup quarterback Kellen Moore finished an efficient 9-of-12 passing for 150 yards and two scores for the Lions, who received a touchdown grab apiece from tight ends Joseph Furia and Tony Scheffler.
Tom Brady played the entire first half under center for the Patriots, who turned the ball over four times in their first five drives. Brady finished 16- of-24 passing for 185 yards with an interception.
Rookie wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins was the lone bright spot for New England, hauling in eight passes for 116 yards to lead all receivers.
