NFL Week 8 Sunday games live discussion, open thread

Come hang out with our Detroit Lions community during all of the Week 8 NFL games.

The Detroit Lions are off as they prepare for their Monday night game against the Las Vegas Raiders. That means for the third time already this season, we’re in a Sunday without Lions football—and we’ve got another one coming next week, too.

That gives us all an opportunity to get a larger scope of the league, and this week’s slate of games—while not exactly elite—should provide plenty of Week 8 entertainment.

For Lions fans, Vikings at Packers is probably the most relevant. Minnesota is starting to figure things out and if they play like they did against the 49ers last week, could be a real challenge to the Lions’ divisional hopes. Green Bay is mightily struggling, but that should have been expected of the youngest team in the NFL.

If you’re more interested in watching two good teams, you’ll likely have to wait until the late afternoon slate when the 49ers and Bengals face off, although Rams vs. Cowboys could be sneaky good.

Oh, and if you’re wondering which teams you should be rooting for, just consult our Week 8 Detroit Lions rooting guide here.
