This weekend’s matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions might not be one of the weekend’s best but the Lions place in the playoff race does make it relevant. As such, FOX sports is sending one of their better broadcast teams to Detroit.

Thom Brennaman will be on the play by play with former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick adding insight and analysis. The tandem is listed as FOX’s number three team behind Buck/Aikman and Albert/Johnston/Siragusa.

Fans in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the Dakotas will get the game on broadcast television while the rest of the country will need the NFL Sunday Ticket package from DirecTV.

Football fans in the Detroit market (and most of the country, to be honest) will get just one game in the late timeslot: Raiders at Packers. For a full list of all the games available in your area check out the coverage maps.
