Atlanta squares off with Detroit on Ford Field this SUnday.

The Falcons are a surprising team for many sitting at 2-0, but for Atlanta fans tracking the offseason, it’s more of a validation of the quality of the team and their offseason. Now the big question is whether they can keep the good time rolling with two challenging opponents next on the slate.

That begins with the Detroit Lions. Sitting at 1-1, wracked by injuries and yet still looking like a strong squad, the Lions are home for this one and will present a formidable test for a Falcons squad that has finished games in spectacular fashion but hasn’t started them quite the same way.

If you’re looking to watch—and of course you are—you can find the critical information below.
