Lions-Patriots halftime observations: Now that was ugly

Free Press sports writer Dave Birkett fielded questions from Facebook on Friday, Aug. 25, 2017, hours before the Lions' exhibition game against the Patriots.

He threw two first-quarter touchdown passes to Chris Hogan, including a dime of a deep ball over Nevin Lawson (who was called for illegal contact on the play).

• Tahir Whitehead missed a tackle on the second play of the game and left at halftime with a knee injury, not a great sign considering how bad the Lions were at linebacker last year.

The Lions rotated personnel at the position early, with Paul Worrilow starting at strongside linebacker and Reeves-Maybin and Antwione Williams taking some first-team reps alongside Davis later in the quarter.

Riddick, who's been in a red no-contact jersey all summer as he recovers from double-wrist surgery, played one series in the first half, had one carry for no gain and one pass thrown his way.
