When the NFL schedule was released back in April, one of the games that immediately jumped out to me was the Detroit Lions' Week 2 showdown with the San Francisco 49ers. It's not only a rematch of a great game from last season and the first meeting between the two teams since "The Handshake," but it's also a part of Sunday Night Football on NBC. Needless to say, it's a big early-season game for both teams.
Here's a look at the details for Sunday night's game between the Lions and 49ers:
Start time: 8:20 p.m. ET
TV: NBC | Announcers: Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth

Spread: 49ers by 7.0
Last time they met: Lions lost by a score of 25-19 at home on Oct. 16, 2011
