ESPN owns the rights to host Monday Night Football every week. Until recently, it was impossible to watch ESPN without cable. Thankfully, today that is no longer the case, as you can now watch ESPN online without a cable subscription. We’ll show you how to do that, and give you a variety of options for watching the Lions vs. Saint game. But before we do that, let’s take a look at how these teams are doing this season.
Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints Preview
In the guide below, we’ll show you how to stream this game online. For now, let’s take a look at the game preview to learn what kind of game we can expect this coming Monday!
After an impressive 2014-2015 season in which the Lions went 11-5, fans were excited for the current season to begin. However, after a rough start to the season, Detroit has struggled to maintain any sort of momentum. Moving into week 15, the Lions are ranked last in the NFC North, with a record of 4-9.
New Orleans Saints
After a lackluster 2014-2015 season, in which the Saints went 7-9 overall, fans were hopeful but not expecting a whole lot for the current season. Like Detroit, New Orleans has also struggled to maintain momentum this season, with a current record of 5-8 moving into week 15. They are ranked last in their division, the NFC South.
With both teams having similar records, this Monday Night game should be a close matchup. With New Orleans hosting, the Saints should hold a slight advantage over the Lions, but time will tell who will come out on top.
