The Patriots defense called out the Lions' play before it happened

6 things Patriots fans should know about the Lions

Detroit's All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay (concussion) and wide receiver Marvin Jones (ankle) are active after both were listed as questionable.

The Patriots and Lions were apparently closing in on a blockbuster deal involving Gronkowski during the week of the NFL Draft. New England is 45-6 after a loss since the 2003 season, last dropping back-to-back regular-season games in 2015.

J.C. Jackson, Keion Crossen and Derek Rivers are all active and will be making their National Football League debuts.

But defensive end Ezekiel Ansah remains out with a shoulder injury.
