If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV.

In the first of two games, NFC North rivals Chicago and Detroit go head-to-head at Ford Field with the Lions looking to keep their playoff hopes alive in front of their home fans.

Bears coach John Fox, meanwhile, may have a harder time getting a fourth season in the Windy City. The win snapped a five-game losing streak and the Bears have been among the least impressive offensive teams in the National Football League, ranking 30th in yards gained, and that's clearly a failure that's on Fox. But the Bears are coming off a promising performance in a 33-7 win at Cincinnati that ended a five-game losing streak.

The Syrian government lead negotiator Bashar Ja'afari however, said that it was not possible to talk to the opposition. The eighth and latest round of peace talks ended in Geneva with little more than hope for a new round in January.

Tarik Cohen nearly had another huge play to add to his highlight reel.

Stafford became the first National Football League player to complete 80-plus percent of his passes in consecutive road games with at least 29 attempts in each one.

The Lions announced they would be down two starting offensive lineman earlier in the week, but at least it's not three. The Lions, who are averaging a league-low 76.3 yards rushing per game, will rank among the NFL's worst running teams for a fourth straight year. Center Travis Swanson is out with a concussion. Listed as questionable are defensive end Ezekiel Ansah, tackle Emmett Cleary and guard T.J. Lang. This game will be decided by both defenses.
