Meanwhile, the Jared Goff era has got off to… not a good start, but a potentially promising one. A 41-33 defeat to the 49ers certainly wasn’t as bad as many had feared for a team led by a new QB and new head coaches, having also parted with Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones.
The Niners’ defending was poor, but it was the Lions’ never-say-die attitude that most impressed. Having been 38-10 down, they almost got something from the game.
It’s hard to overstate just how bad the Packers were against the Saints, the two Aarons going absolutely nowhere fast. Meanwhile, Detroit can expect to improve rapidly by the week as Goff, Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes get to understand each other.
This could be a very interesting game indeed, so follow our guide for how to watch the Lions vs Packers online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are in the world right now.

If you’ve mismatched a holiday or you’re away on business and you want to watch your country’s coverage from abroad, then you’ll need to use a VPN. This will help you dial in to a location back in your home country to avoid geo-blocks and regain access to the content and services you already pay for back home.
A VPN is generally perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address so you appear to be in a completely different location when the big game is on.
