The Detroit Lions find themselves in unfamiliar territory. One of nine undefeated teams, Detroit is already alone atop the NFC North, a full game ahead of both the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.

But Week 3 presents their biggest challenge to date. The Atlanta Falcons are in town, and they, too, are undefeated. The Falcons are looking to make it three in a row against NFC North opponents, as they have already beaten the Bears and Packers in back-to-back weeks.

The last time the two teams met, it was in London and Detroit pulled out a last-second win after Matt Prater nailed a game-winning 48-yard field goal as time expired.

A lot has changed since that 2014 game, but both teams remain relevant and Sunday’s game may have a huge impact on how the NFC plays out in 2017.

Feel free to chat during the first half of the game below. Remember that SB Nation is strictly against any requests or promotions for illegal NFL streams. Posts including such streams will be immediately deleted and the poster will be banned.
