The game between Detroit and the Indianapolis Colts last week was not a total blowout, but with Detroit falling 41-21 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. Despite the defeat, Detroit had strong showings from QB Matthew Stafford, who passed for three TDs and 336 yards on 42 attempts, and WR Marvin Jones, who snatched two receiving TDs. Stafford ended up with a passer rating of 143.20.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Vikings beat the Green Bay Packers 28-22 last week. RB Dalvin Cook went supernova for Minnesota as he rushed for three TDs and 163 yards on 30 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD. One of the most thrilling moments was Cook's 50-yard TD reception down the left side of the field in the third quarter. Cook's sharp performance set his single-game rushing touchdown high for the season.
Detroit is expected to lose this next one by 4. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
Detroit's loss took them down to 3-4 while Minnesota's win pulled them up to 2-5. Allowing an average of 30.57 points per game, Minnesota hadn't exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. We'll see if they can patch up the holes in their defense before their upcoming contest.

There are plenty of options for following the most popular sport in the US. Paying up for a cable subscription is the simplest solution. It allows you to watch your local team and a bunch of other teams without worrying about which channels are available.
For cord-cutters who want to save some money, however, NFL football live options get a bit more complicated. Your best bet is to subscribe to a live TV service but the sheer number of channels that carry live games -- local CBS, NBC and Fox channels, as well as the national feeds of NFL Network and ESPN -- means you'll either have to get a relatively expensive service or make a compromise and miss some games every week.
The only way to get a full football experience is to have a whole litany of channels from your TV provider. Sunday NFC games are largely on Fox, AFC games are on CBS and Sunday night football is on NBC. Monday night football is only on ESPN. Though Fox has most Thursday night games, there are several that are NFL Network-only.
Every "Sunday Night Football" game of the 2020 season can be watched via the following services.

CBS All Access is another ideal option for watching NFL games online. In addition to a back catalog of CBS shows, plus some shows like Star Trek: Picard, this service also lets you watch your local CBS station and that channel’s games in your market as they air live.
FOX typically broadcasts two NFC games on Sunday afternoons since they hold the rights to the NFC matchups. The network will also air “Thursday Night Football” games.
ESPN will televise all 17 “MNF” games, while Amazon Prime will broadcast 11 Thursday night games.
