POLL Are you rooting for the Patriots in Super Bowl LII

If the Patriots had beaten the Eagles in Super Bowl LII, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia would have been able to leave New England on a high note, at the top of their game ready to tackle the next phase of their promising young National Football League coaching careers. He spent five years as linebackers coach, one coaching safeties before being named defensive co-ordinator in 2012. He won three Super Bowls with the Patriots and worked 12 years with Quinn, who left the Patriots to become Lions general manager in January of 2016.

Patricia was always viewed as the frontrunner because he spent 12 of his 14 seasons in New England with Quinn.

The Detroit Lions take on the Buffalo Bills at Ford Field.

In a statement, Patricia said: "This position comes with great responsibility, and I will commit every ounce of my energy to this football team, starting today".

"I can't express enough appreciation to the entire New England Patriots franchise, particularly Robert and Jonathan Kraft and their entire family", Patricia said.

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford had previously lobbied to keep Cooter on staff following Caldwell's firing, saying he hoped the team would maintain continuity on offense after offensive line coach Ron Prince was also fired.

"Matt is driven to succeed, has extensive passion for the game and excels in preparation", Quinn said.

The Lions are expected to introduce Patricia as their new head coach in a news conference Wednesday.

McIlroy, a two-time Dubai Desert Classic victor , held the 36-hole lead after completing his second round early Saturday. Like McIlroy said later that he tried his best and had to make Li win it in the end, not gift it to him on a platter.

Patricia, 43, has 20 years of coaching experience in college and the pros, including the past 14 seasons with the Patriots, which has a first-rate organization. This is a unique opportunity to take a winning assistant coach, Matt Stafford, our offense and try to win some games.

Those are handsome numbers to the Lions, who have fielded a top-10 scoring defense just once during the past 20 years.

The expectations will indeed be high for Patricia, who is replacing Jim Caldwell - the winningest head coach in Lions history.

Those traits have been the hallmark of Patricia's defense in New England the past six seasons, according to King. The site even goes as far as to name Alex Grinch his replacement in Columbus.
