Patriots Silence Lions

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Tom Brady threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns and the New England Patriots defense held the Detroit Lions in check all game en route to a 34-9 victory Sunday.

The Patriots (9-2) took command of the game in the second quarter. After Matt Prater kicked a 20-yard field goal to put the Lions within one point of the Pats, New England scored 17 unanswered to go into halftime with a 24-6 lead.

The second half is when the Patriots defense stepped up, allowing one field goal in six Lions' drives.

LeGarrette Blount, who was cut by the Steelers and then signed by the Patriots this past week, carried the ball 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns.

Detroit (7-4) couldn't get anything going on offense. Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate combined for only eight catches while being blanketed by Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis all afternoon.

The Patriots have now won seven straight and will head to Green Bay next weekend, where they will take on the Packers (8-3). Meanwhile, the Lions, which have lost two straight, will host the Chicago Bears (5-6) on Thanksgiving.
