We’re back for the third week of Sunday Night Football to close out the day. The
Detroit Lions host the New England Patriots , with kickoff set for 5:20 p.m. PT on NBC. Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth are
calling the game from the booth, and Michele Tafoya is handling sideline
duties.This game brings us another Bill Belichick coaching reunion. The Lions
hired Matt Patricia as their head coach, and once again we get the student vs.
the teacher. Belichick has had a lot of success against his former coaches,
going 15-8 against them, and 12-4 against former Patriots assistants.The
Patriots are a 6.5-point favorite, although the line did climb up to a touchdown
at one point, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. The betting
public is heavily on the Patriots in this one, and the fact that it is under a
touchdown has sharp money on it as well. I’m going with Belichick’s success and
the Lions atrocious defense in picking the Patriots to cover.Patriots vs. Lions,

Hosts Cardinals, Look For Second Win Good morning sports fans, and a good
evening to our friends across the ponds. The 49ers play an afternoon game at
home today, which may be, not to put the cart before the horse, the most
winnable game of the season. Of course, injuries have been the unfortunate
headline dominating the 49ers’ 2018 season, and the trend doesn’t seem to be
letting up leading into today’s game.Although there has been only one late
addition to the injury report (Jimmie Ward dealing with a hamstring injury), the
list of players designated as “questionable” is still a mile long. Notably, the
Wednesday injury report listed tackles Mike McGlinchey (knee) and Joe Staley
(knee) Youth Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , as well as center Weston Richburg (knee), as injured, and there were some questions surrounding the likelihood of recovery by
Sunday. Although all three are still “questionable” for the game, the trio
participated fully on Friday’s practice, which provides some reason to be
optimistic that they’ll be able to perform. Furthermore, guards Joshua Garnett
(toe) and Mike Person (knee), who were also listed as questionable, have been
removed from the injured list. It seems likely at this point that the team will
not be forced to roll with a full complement of backup linemen (outside of Laken
Tomlinson, the lone healthy OL) starting today.Unfortunately, this wasn’t the
case along the rest of the roster. Veteran cornerback Richard Sherman (calf) has
been limited in practice Youth Alfred Morris Jersey , which is a reassuring sign after immediate hot takes assumed he’d be out for a month or more. Jimmie Ward, however, did not
practice on Friday, and the pair are listed as questionable. I wouldn’t be
surprised to see them both suited up, but planted firmly on the sidelines.The
offensive skill group is still hurting, as Dante Pettis (knee) is out for sure,
and Marquise Goodwin (hamstring & quad) remains questionable after limited
practice. Matt Breida (shoulder) remains questionable as well. If either Goodwin
or Breida are unable to go, this game will surely become much more tightly
contested, and in a hurry. Let’s hope these guys wake up feeling healthy and
refreshed, because we sure could use their help in getting our second win of the
season ~ Go Niners!Injury report heading into Sunday || Maiocco Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey , NBC Sports Bay AreaKyle Shanahan believes defensive line is key to victory against Cardinals || Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area49ers
