Patriots WR Gordon inactive against Lions

Josh Gordon figures to capture plenty of eyes- and defensive backs- if he takes the field for the Patriots tonight against the Lions in Detroit

Gordon took a selfie with some Patriots fans before departing the field after his warmup. Before the 8:25 p.m. kick-off, Belichick emerged from the tunnel and strutted right past the boys' stretched out arms.

"Patriots are a great team, great ownership, great head coach, great players and we've got a huge challenge in front of us", said Patricia, who spent 14 seasons with New England, six as defensive coordinator.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the New England Patriots were close to sending tight end Rob Gronkowski to the Detroit Lions during the week of the National Football League draft.

Obviously, the Lions are the big losers here as it is so apparent they could have used Gronkowski's services this season.

Tight end Jacob Hollister, who has shown promise as a receiving target, also was also inactive.

The deal was thwarted when Gronkowski threatened to retire if he was shipped off to Motown.

Over the first two games, he has caught passes for 138 yards and a touchdown. He wast listed on Friday's game injury report as questionable with a hamstring injury.

The Packers go on the road to face Gronkowski and the Patriots in November.
