FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The Detroit Lions haven't had much trouble scoring points this season. Winning games hasn't come as easily.
The New England Patriots are reeling for a different reason and could use a victory just as bad as the teams prepare to match up on Sunday.
Through four weeks, the Lions are averaging an NFL-high 35 points and a league-high 437 yards per game. But even 45 points wasn't enough to beat Seattle at Ford Field last week, dropping Detroit to 1-3 as it tries to avoid a fifth straight season with at least 10 losses.
