DETROIT — Nothing ever gets fixed, or stays fixed. The only thing Matt Patricia's defense can fix these days is the other team's struggling quarterback.
It's gotten so bad that when the Lions grabbed a quick 14-0 lead over the Saints Sunday, no one in the Ford Field stands believed they'd win. OK, that's a trick statement. No one was in the Ford Field stands, but if fans were allowed, they'd have seen another miserable collapse coming, just as the opponent always sees it coming.
