Atlanta Falcons vs Detroit Lions Live Stream (Fox): Watch NFL Football 2017 Online

The Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions will be clashing in a big game on Sunday, with both teams looking to claim a Week 3 win. The game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and takes place from Ford Field in Detroit. The game can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream (details below).

Both teams come into today's game on 2-0, but only one team will be able to leave Ford Field today with a third straight win of the season. The stakes are high and neither team will want to lose the momentum they've gained through the opening two weeks of the season with a loss here today.

In the 36 regular season meetings between the pair, the Lions have won 24 compared to the Falcons 12 victories. However, today's game should be very tight, with both sides coming with strong teams that expect to go far this season.

Atlanta have a high powered offensive unit, and the Lions will have too find a way to keep them quiet in today's game if they are to claim the win. That means getting pressure on Matt Ryan and stopping him connecting with wide receiver Julio Jones.

At the moment the Falcons have the No. 8 ranked offense, where as the Lions have the No. 7 ranked defense, so this should be an intriguing match up to see who comes out on top.

Earlier this week, Thursday's game between the Los Angeles Rams and the San Francisco 49ers turned out to be the highest scoring game in the history of NFL Thursday Night Football games, with the Rams claiming a 41-39 victory to move to 2-1. The 49ers meanwhile suffered a third straight loss to drop to 0-3, and their season is immediately on the brink.

The highest scoring game for Thursday Night Football prior to the Rams vs 49ers battle was the 2014 meeting between the Chargers and the 49ers. Again in that game the 49ers came out on the losing side, suffering a 38-35 defeat.

Many may have expected the Rams to come out firing on all cylinders, as they had already proven that they have the players to participate in a high-scoring shootout. In Week 1 they scored 46 points. However, the way the 49ers responded and fought all the way was wholly unexpected for most people, but it helped to provide one of the most entertaining games you're likely to see all season.

In the fourth quarter with under nine minutes remaining in the game, the 49ers were 41-26 behind and looked dead and buried. However, then Brian Hoyer led the team to two straight scoring drives.

Hoyer first threw a 3 year touchdown pass to Trent Taylor to make the scores 41-33, but even then most thought the touchdown was more a consolation prize rather than the start if an amazing fight back from the 49ers.

But from the restart, Rams' returner Pharoh Cooper fumbled to hand the ball straight back to the 49ers. Sn inspired San Francisco team then pushed forward for eight plays before a one yard run by Carlos Hyde got them into the end zone to pull the score to 41-39.

The 49errs went for the two point conversation to bring things level, but were unable to pull it off, leaving them two points behind and facing defeat.

But the breathless finale to the game was not over yet. From the restart the 49ers recovered the onside kick and it looked like they might pull off one of the most amazing comebacks. But soon after, Hoyer was sacked by Aaron Donald on a fourth-and 20 play, and the game was over.

However, the ending of the game revealed some fight that many thought the 49ers were lacking, and that could give them hope that it will not be all doom and gloom this season in the end.

Meanwhile, today's Week 3 game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Detroit Lions has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on the Fox network, or online through live stream by clicking here.
