The Detroit Lions have football Sunday off for the second time in three weeks. With a nice comfortable seat atop the NFC North, Lions players can rest easy knowing that no matter what happens during Sunday’s games, nothing will change the fact that they lead their division.

As for us fans, we are treated to the same knowledge. We can sit back and enjoy Sunday—as a nice chance to forget Saturday, for some of us—and know that our Lions are in first place and will remain so until at least for two more weeks.

Here’s a look at the schedule of games today:
