Needless to say, both teams are playing extremely well through two weeks.While Atlanta and Detroit have been known for their solid quarterback and high-scoring offenses, this match-up could be a low-key defensive battle. Both squads have focused on improving their defensive talent in the last few years, which could make for a hard-hitting game on Sunday at Ford Field.
These two franchises look to be two of the better NFC teams in this early part of the season, which is exactly why this is definitely a must-watch in week three.
Fans in local markets can expect this game to be shown on FOX, but for everyone else, you’ll need to head to your local sports bar or sign up for NFL Sunday Ticket. You can access NFL Sunday Ticket online or through the app using a paid subscription.
The winner of this early-season game will hold an important tie-breaker over the other, in terms of the 2017-2018 NFL Playoffs. While this is only Week 3, don’t kid yourself that this matchup doesn’t hold significant playoff implications. This game could well set the tone heading into the heart of the season for both teams.
