This could be an early preview of a potential Super Bowl matchup this season.
The New England Patriots travel to Detroit to face the Lions in week three of the preseason.
The Patriots are in search of their first preseason win.
Kick off is set for 7:00 PM ET with QB Tom Brady set to start against Lions QB Matt Stafford. Brady threw his first TD of the preseason last week against the Texans.
New England Patriots
With Tom Brady looking good so far in the preseason, the Patriots Jimmy Garoppolo has been solid as well.
He completed 8 of 19 passes for 145 yards and one touchdown.
Brady will play one or two series in the first quarter, while Garoppolo will play majority of the game for New England tonight.
The Detroit Lions are hoping this year they can get past the first round of the playoffs. So far, the Lions are undefeated in the preseason. Matt Stafford looked sharp last week.
He was 8 for 10 with 108 yards passing and one touchdown.
The main question offensively for Detroit will be at the RB position. The Lions played seven running backs last week and they all combined for 82 yards and zero touchdowns.

Both teams will shine through the air, but the question still remains with Detroit. Can they move the ball on the ground this season? The Patriots will get their first preseason win in a close high scoring game.
