The Falcons are coming off a statement victory at home against the Green Bay Packers in a game where the Atlanta offense exploded and made the Packers defense look elementary, and they will be out for an encore against their second straight NFC North opponent in the Detroit Lions. The Lions defense has done their part as well, forcing seven turnovers and recording six sacks through the team's first two games.

The Atlanta Falcons, by all accounts, should have lost that game. His tweet included a video clip from December 21st, 1997 when the Lions hosted the New York Jets at the Pontiac Silverdome. They finally forced the first Falcons punts of the game in the fourth quarter and the Lions found themselves down four points but with the ball for a potential game-winning drive. The Lions now rank No. 9 in the league in defense, as they've allowed just 289 yards per game so far this season.

The Falcons nearly let this one slip, but luckily they held on at the end.

Former Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah kneeled during the national anthem on Sunday before the Detroit Lions' game against the Atlanta Falcons.

For the money line, the Falcons are -155 while the Detroit Lions are +135 underdogs in a close matchup.

But Atlanta once again scored quickly on a 1-yard run by Devonta Freeman for a 17-3 edge with exactly 5:00 showing on the clock. Viewers in participating regions may be able to see the game live streaming online by logging into their Fox Sports Go website or compatible mobile apps.

But the Lions could have the biggest secret weapon of all when the Falcons have the football.
