With last season’s league MVP Patrick Mahomes in town, the Lions have a lot to do on both sides of the ball to hold back the lethal offense led by Mahomes. An early, double-digit lead helps Matt Patricia’s club, but as we’ve seen in the past, Mahomes and Andy Reid and turn it on in an instant and rain multiple touchdowns in the same quarter to flip a game wide open.
Hockenson is Detroit’s first-round pick from the 2019 NFL Draft last April, coming out of Iowa. After going scoreless in two straight weeks, Hockenson’s Week 4 touchdown comes after the 6-foot-5 tight end scored in his professional debut four weeks ago.
