The Falcons travel to Detroit for a key NFC matchup.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Detroit Lions

In a pivotal mid-season showdown between the team with the NFC's best record last season and the surprise team of the NFC team this year, the 3-3 Atlanta Falcons travel to play the 5-1 Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Atlanta is firmly entrenched in the middle of the NFC pack, losing as many games this year as they did all season and searching desperately for a signature win. None of the teams the Falcons have defeated this year have a winning record.

Detroit, after years of irrelevance, has rocketed out to a 5-1 start, behind the playmaking ability of QB Matt Stafford and WR Calvin Johnson and a defense anchored by DT Ndamukong Suh. However, they are dealing with a host of injuries in the back-field, as starting RB Jahvid Best suffered his second concussion of the year last week while backup Jerome Harrison reportedly has a tumor in his brain.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, October 23; 1:00 PM EST

Location: Ford Field, Detroit, MI

TV Schedule: Regional FOX

TV Distribution Map: The506.com

Radio Schedule: Falcons 94.1 FM Atlanta
