Hey, these guys seem familiar.

Tonight’s edition of Sunday Night Football features the Detroit Lions’ first two opponents. The 49ers are 2-0 after adding a win against the Eagles in Week 2. They’ve had a revolving door at running back, and Trey Sermon and Kerryon Johnson could see action tonight with Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, Elijah Mitchell, and JaMycal Hasty all hurt. In an uber-talented NFC West, a win tonight would be important for San Francisco.

The Packers are looking to continue their rebound after steamrolling the Lions last week. Aaron Rodgers threw for four touchdowns, but Aaron Jones was the primary recipient. There are still concerns about their aerial attack with Davante Adams as the lone dependable receiver. Tonight is a chance for Green Bay to show if they are a competitor or not.

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Date: Sunday, September 26, 2021
Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Location: Levi’s Stadium—Santa Clara, CA
Announcers: Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst), Michele Tafoya (sidelines)
