Football is officially back as the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots open up preseason play on Thursday night at the Detroit Lions.
Following a trio of joint practices this week, New England and Detroit will square off for only the tenth time in the preseason and first since 2017. In that last meeting, a two-point win for the Patriots, New England lost receiver Julian Edelman for the season with a torn ACL.
Edelman played in last year’s preseason opener, a rarity, as he was rehabbing and was also suspended for the first four regular-season games.
As for 42-year-old Tom Brady, his presence in preseason openers is rare. Brady hasn’t suited up for a preseason opener since 2015 when he played in two series going 1 for 4 passing with 10 yards.
The Lions have several familiar faces of past Patriots on this year’s team, including head coach Matt Patricia.
On offense, receiver Danny Amendola spent five seasons with the Patriots, winning two Super Bowls. He scored 12 touchdowns on 2,393 yards receiving in the regular season, adding another six scores in the playoffs.
Four members of the Detroit defensive line spent time in New England – John Atkins, Darius Kilgo, Eric Lee, and Trey Flowers. While Atkins and Kilgo were offseason or practice squad contributors, Lee made a splash as an unknown, recording 2.5 sacks and an interception in his first two games late in the 2017 season.
Week 1 of preseason is never really a veteran-heavy contest. Don’t expect to see too many big-name players out there for either side. Rather, it’s a chance for rookies to get their feet wet as an NFL player for the first time.
On the Detroit side, highly-touted rookie tight end TJ Hockenson should be making his preseason debut after an incredible career at Iowa. Corner Teez Tabor has also emerged as a starting candidate.
For New England, Jarrett Stidham, N’Keal Harry, Chase Winovich, and Jakobi Meyers headline a long list of rookie impact players set to make their first appearance for the Patriots. Harry’s situation is up in the air after a leg injury in practice on Wednesday, though his status is still uncertain.
