What channel is Lions vs. Falcons on and what is game time for Week 16

The Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons face off in Week 16 of the 2021 NFL season. We break down how to watch the game.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions are coming off one of the most stunning upsets of the NFL season, and they will head on the road for a matchup against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

Detroit shocked the league by beating the Arizona Cardinals with ease last week in a game between the team with the worst record and one that was tied for the top record in the NFL. The Lions could be without Jared Goff in this matchup as he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.

Atlanta did not play well in a 31-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last week to drop to 6-8 on the season. The Falcons have been slightly better in a yards per play basis than the Lions this season, and they will certainly have the quarterback advantage especially if it’s Matt Ryan against Tim Boyle.
