Lions notes: Matt Patricia under average pressure in 2019

Much has been already said about Matt Patricia’s status in Detroit. The former New England Patriots defensive coordinator’s first year of establishing the “Patriot Way” in 2018 was a rocky 6-10 season, and we are all watching to see if the team can get it together in year two.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora realizes the pressure on Patricia, but believes that a lot of other coaches are dealing with even more strain in 2019. La Canfora ranked all 32 NFL head coaches by how “hot” their seat is entering the season, and the Lions coach came in 15th.
