FOX 17 – The Detroit Lions’ continued push to the playoffs takes a tough turn this week, with a road game against another playoff hopeful, the New York Giants.

The Lions game vs. the Giants will be the lone FOX game in our market this week, but will feature the #1 broadcasting team of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman at 1:00pm.  The other Fox game at 1:00pm of note for our region, the Green Bay Packers visiting the Chicago Bears in subzero weather, is relagated to the Chicago area, Wisconsin and the upper midwest.

CBS gets the doubleheader this week, and our region gets two games with Fantasy Football Playoff implications (at least for me), with the Indianapolis Colts visiting the Minnesota Vikings at 1:00pm and the New England Patriots visiting the Denver Broncos at 4:25pm.

This week also has our first Saturday night game, with the Miami Dolphins visiting the New York Jets…and has no fantasy implications for hardly anyone.

Next week, most NFL games will be on Saturday, Christmas Eve, with only one game on Sunday, Christmas Day.  The Lions visit the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
