Bill Belichick marches to the beat of a different drummer. He is not concerned about what the other team does. He has an agenda, and his teams have a tendency to execute it to perfection. The Patriots were on the offensive all of last year, and have picked up right where they left off, averaging 39 points per game in their first two preseason outings. This isn't out of the ordinary as Belichick and his coveted Patriots have averaged 28.5 ppg in their last 10 preseason games. In those games, the average points scored has topped 48. The Lions finally have a healthy QB and some solid weapons on offense, and haven't been shy in showing them off as they averaged 31 ppg in their first two games. Going back to last year, their average has been over 30 ppg in their last five, with all five games playing OVER. This one looks like a shootout in Motown, so the OVER gets the call.
