Thanksgiving Game a Trap Game?

My latest article for NFL.com’s Blog Blitz has been posted and in it, I discuss the possibility and the reasons why the Lions game could be a trap game for the Patriots. It has all of the makings of a trap game, and the Patriots haven’t shown yet that they can overcome a trap game. The last game that could be considered a trap game, against the Cleveland Browns, ended in a thumping courtesy of Peyton Hillis. Will the Lions game yield similar results? Here is an excerpt from the piece:

Despite the Patriots’ tremendous success this season, it’s easy to forget that they are still a young team coming together and learning how to win. They have done a great job of that, with the latest coming in Sunday’s last-second defensive stop of Peyton Manning. However, they have also shown that they can come out flat against a lesser team and get beat, like they did against the Cleveland Browns.
