New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Patriots-Lions Second Quarter Thoughts

* Is someone going to block Suh? Gets in there to stop the Pats fora three-yard loss. Pats with just 7 rush yards to this point.

* Woodhead goes for 14 yards, but flag down, illegal cut block on Logan Mankins kills the play, making it a 2nd and 20.

* Hill doing a good job getting out of pressure all day, makes a big play to convert a third and two to move the chains for the Lions to the Pats 25.

* Hills ability to make plays opens up the run game, and Morris breaks off a run to put the ball at the 12.

* Great reach by Williams gives them the first down, what a great play to reach even though it was good coverage. It’s actually short, but Detroit will go for it.

* Hill with the QB sneak, good call and it’s a first down.

* Morris gets in from the one inch line, and the Pats are down 11 with 5:58 to play in the first half. Drive: 13 plays, 63 yards in 6:24.

* Pats are doing the right thing right now slowing the game down, trying to keep their D off the field for a bit. Then Tate drops what would have been a big play.

* First penalty on the Lions gives the Pats a much needed first down.

* Green-Ellis shows some toughness as Pats jump back in the game with a TD run to make it 14-10.

* Give the Lions credit for getting a drive to get the 47-yard field goal to put them up 17-10 at half.
