When Detroit takes the field, they may see a familiar face as the Cowboys have reportedly signed former Lions’ defensive tackle Caraun Reid.

Reid was originally selected by the Lions in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He spent his first two seasons in Detroit and recorded 23 tackles and two sacks in 26 games (12 starts) before heading to the San Diego Chargers for the 2016 season. In 2017, he returned to the Lions but only played in one game.

Detroit Lions’ fans booed him, but Matt Patricia defends decision to kick field goal

When the Detroit Lions hosted the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football, most experts thought that Tom Brady and company would leave town with a victory. That is why many fans were upset with Matt Patricia after he decided to kick a field goal rather than go for it on fourth-and-inches early in the game.

After forcing the Patriots to punt on the opening drive of the game, Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense went on a 12 play 65-yard drive that ended with a Matt Prater field goal. The decision to attempt a field goal was made by Patricia after Stafford’s pass to Golden Tate to the Patriots’ 21 yard line came up just inches short of the first down.

As the Lions special teams unit came out to the field, you could clearly hear many of the fans booing Patricia for not going for the first down.

Following the game, Patricia defended his decision to kick the field goal rather than going for the first down.
