There are just 10 undefeated teams in the NFL heading into Sunday's games. Two of those teams will meet in an early afternoon game as the Matthew Stafford and the Detroit lions host Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. Which team will emerge 3-0 in the NFL standings from this important game? Here's the latest Falcons vs. Lions game preview including matchup odds, start time, TV channels, and how to watch it live streaming online.

NFL game preview

The Atlanta Falcons started their season with a shaky 23-17 win against a Chicago Bears team not expected to go very far this season.

They followed with a more convincing win as they took down another possible NFC contender this year. In last week's game, the Falcons took down Aaron Rodgers and the Packers 34-23 at home. Quarterback Matt Ryan threw for 252 yards and a touchdown while running back Devonta Freeman had 19 carries for 84 yards and two touchdowns. Now they're on the road to face another star quarterback named Matt and an improved Lions' defense.

For their season so far, the Detroit Lions have defeated the Arizona Cardinals 35-23 in Week 1, and the New York Giants 24-10 in Week 2. Stafford threw 15-for-21 against the Giants for 122 yards and two touchdowns, while rookie Jamal Agnew had an 88-yard punt return for a touchdown.

The Lions currently rank No. 9 in the league in defense, as they've allowed just 289 yards per game so far this season. Will they be able to hold down Matt Ryan and the Falcons?

The Odds Shark website lists Atlanta as three-point favorites on the road today. For the money line, the Falcons are -155 while the Detroit Lions are +135 underdogs in a close matchup.

Today's over/under points total is 50.5 points for the complete game. Atlanta is 6-3 against the spread in their last nine games, while Detroit is 2-5 ATS in their last seven games.
