Mark Wahlberg visited Taylor over the weekend, opening up his second Wahlburgers location in Michigan.
On the red carpet, he visited with WXYZ's Brad Galli and dove into some football conversation.
Wahlberg, a Patriots fan, praised the Lions' hire of Matt Patricia.
"You guys got a great head coach with the Lions, Coach Patricia," Wahlberg told Galli.
The actor said he didn't just like Patricia's work in New England. He loved it.
"You guys have what I think is the next Bill Belichick. He's the real deal. He's the real deal. Matt Stafford and you guys can go a long way," Wahlberg added.
