The Detroit Lions underwent a regime change

in the offseason , and the early returns already have long-suffering fans of this team fearing the worst.A 1-3 record in the NFL preseason saw the Lions finish with a minus-34 point differential. But if this is cause for concern, new coach Matt Patricia isn't showing it."I think for me, I'm really just trying to look forward as far as what we've got to do this week," Patricia said. The Lions open the regular season playing host to the New York Jets on Monday, and that's where Patricia is placing his emphasis.His players are also opting to take the same approach as their coach."We're kind of using the preseason as a stepping stone," linebacker Jarrad Davis said. "Now we're playing and practicing for a new team, somebody that we want to go beat, and it's actually going to count."Defensive back Quandre Diggs, who agreed a three-year, $20.4 million contract extension with the team on Monday, figures the Lions are simply in the midst of the natural growing pains that come from a transitional phase."I've dealt with change in the past in college (at Texas)," Diggs said. "It really isn't different. It's the nature of the business."Still, surrendering a league-high 27.75 points in preseason play has to be a worry for a team that put its future in the hands of Patricia, formerly the defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots."I think we got some things accomplished as far as player evaluation," Patricia said. "That was our biggest point of emphasis. We got some fundamentals laid down."He'll continue to evaluate and reassess. On Monday, Patricia reached back into his past as the Lions claimed linebacker Marquis Flowers on waivers from the Patriots."We'll still be working the roster as best we can," Patricia said. "We'll be bringing guys in. There's a lot of guys that have been released here over the last couple of days, and more to come, so we'll continually try to look at those players to see if they help upgrade us."After the Lions concluded the preseason with a 35-17 home loss to the Cleveland Browns, Patricia allowed that the process of implementing what he wants to do is going to take a long time. Exactly how long was a commitment he wasn't prepared to make."I don't think we ever really put a finite time on that Kenny Golladay Jersey ," Patricia said. "We certainly have a lot of work to do, which is definitely part of this as we go. I thought by the end of training camp, things were working a lot more smoother, a lot better."It's just a process that we go through and where that journey takes us, we'll find out."NOTES: Rookie receiver Brandon Powell switched from No. 1 to No. 10, but it was not of his own volition. "I don't know," Powell said. "I just came in here this morning and it was hanging in my locker. I was just happy to have a number." ... Flowers was issued No. 59. ... LB Trevor Bates was waived to make room for Flowers. ... Two players picked up on waivers Sunday, CB Dee Virgin (Houston) and OL Andrew Donnal (Baltimore), joined practice Monday. Donnal was issued No. 78 and Virgin is wearing No. 30.Detroit Lions vs. San Francisco 49ers final score: Tacky holding call ends Lions’ comeback attempt, 30-27 The Detroit Lions fell to 0-2 on the season, and in true Lions fashion, it ended with some controversy. Let’s get into it.First quarterThe Detroit Lions started the game on offense and built a little bit of confidence on the ground, gaining a couple of first downs before getting to midfield. There the drive stalled when Kerryon Johnson came up 2 yards short on third-and-3.The 49ers responded quickly with a 28-yard run. Then a 35-yard pass to Dante Pettis. However, when the Niners got into the red zone, the Lions defense stepped up with back-to-back sacks, forcing a short field goal, in which Robbie Gould promptly made. 3-0 49ers. But the Lions offense finally showed some life early in the game. Kenny Golladay continues to be the working force behind the Lions offense, and he capped a 69-yard touchdown with this catch: Second quarterKyle Shanahan’s offense continued to move the ball efficiently against Matt Patricia’s defense as the game moved to the second quarter. The Lions only managed to force two third downs (a third-and-1 and third-and-2), as the Niners quickly scored on a broken coverage play. 49ers 10, Lions 7.From there the offenses slowed down a bit. The Lions went three-and-out Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , but then they forced a punt thanks to a huge tackle for loss from rookie defensive lineman Da’Shawn Hand. But on the ensuing drive, Matthew Stafford made another grave mistake. Facing a third-and-3, Stafford couldn’t find an open receiver. Instead of throwing the ball away, he tried to extend the play and was too careless with the ball, fumbling it away and giving the 49ers the ball in the red zone. Thankfully, the Lions defense held strong and San Francisco had to add a field goal. 13-7 49ers.The Lions offense continued to be stuck in neutral, especially in third-and-short situations. However, the defense forced a three-and-out late in the second quarter, giving the Lions time for a two-minute, one-minute drive (thanks to some poor clock management from Patricia). Stafford drove the Lions into the red zone, but couldn’t punch it in, and the Lions settled for a chip-shot field goal. 13-10 49ers.Third quarterThe Lions special teams remained cursed in the third quarter as the 49ers took the opening kickoff for a touchdown. A facemask penalty took the points off the board, but San Francisco still started with the ball inside the Lions’ 30-yard line. A few plays later, Jimmy Garoppolo found Garrett Celek for an 11-yard score. 20-10 49ers.The Lions got a kick start with a good return of their own, as Jamal Agnew got the Lions to midfield. From there, the Lions rushed their way into the red zone, but back-to-back holding penalties drove the Lions back. Conservative play-calling mixed with checkdowns led to another field goal. 20-13 49ers. The Lions defense won a Pyrrhic victory on the next drive, forcing a punt, but losing Darius Slay to a concussion. The Lions defense got to midfield, but again failed on a third down. A nice Sam Martin pinned the 49ers deep Youth LeGarrette Blount Jersey , but it wouldn’t end up mattering, because...The Lions defense couldn’t stop the run, and Matt Breida went 66-yards to push the score to two possessions. 27-13 49ersFourth quarterWe’re bullet-pointing again:Lions’ three-and-out49ers field goal. 30-17 49ers.Matthew Stafford connects with Golden Tate on a 67-yard play. Marvin Jones Jr. finished the drive with a touchdown. 30-20 49ers.Defense holds for a three-and-outAgnew punt return TD called back due to two block in the back penaltiesLions drive down field, as Stafford hits *checks notes* MICHAEL ROBERTS???? 30-27 49ers. And that’s where the controversy started. The Lions defense had one chance for a stop and a third-and-2, and Tracy Walker stepped in front of a Jimmy Garoppolo pass and nearly took it to the house. Unfortunately a holding penalty on Quandre Diggs negated the interception and the 49ers got an automatic first down.Was it the right call? It didn’t seem like a lot, but Diggs did get his hands on George Kittle.The 49ers ended up running out most of the clock and while the Lions got one more opportunity to score, they fell short after a couple key drops from Theo Riddick. PregameIt’s gameday and the Detroit Lions are back in action this week in the hopes of putting Week 1 far, far behind them. It’s was a suspicious way for the Matt Patricia era to begin, but as ugly as it was, it was only one game. Patricia’s head coaching career will not be defined simply by a opening egg.The Lions will be without starting guard T.J. Land and the San Francisco 49ers will be without their starting (and backup) guards as well. The good news for Detroit is that it looks like a couple other key players going through injuries will be good to go. According to Ian Rapoport, both running back LeGarrette Blount and edge rusher Ezekiel Ansah are expected to play Sunday afternoon, despite both being questionable on the injury report. With the Lions chilling on the west coast, we won’t get to see them until the 4 p.m. ET spot. Here’s how to catch them, as Week 2 kicks off.
