The Lions meanwhile look to chase down the Packers and Vikings in the NFC North and while they have had some success over the last handful of seasons they still haven't been able to push through to the next tier of National Football League supremacy.
In last year's season opener, the Cardinals allowed a touchdown simply because cornerback Brandon Williams did not catch a signal. The team is relying on him in the RB1 position.
The sparkling two-touchdown debut of third-round rookie receiver Kenny Golladay, plus the shocking four-takeaway performance of the Lions defense, resulted in 20 unanswered points and a massive 35-17 win. FOX will be providing the TV telecast while the game can also be watched online live on FuboTV. He's one of eight players selected in the first three rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft who doesn't have a Twitter account. Golladay, who had gotten behind the Cardinals defense, laid out for the catch and rolled into the end zone. When the two teams played in 2015, Fitzgerald had a little under 60 yards and a touchdown.
Ironically, the two teams both faced Super Bowl competitors in Week 3 preseason.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford is playing his best football since past year and a half, and it could get a stronger with the addition of running back Ameer Abdullah, who missed later half of the last season with a foot injury. On the other hand, The Arizona Cardinals faced off against the Atlanta Falcons.
Another good sign? Golladay shook off a tough first half before taking over. This game alone changed everything, and the Lions are officially ranked the underdog.
