On the evening of Monday, October 5. the Detroit Lions will go up against the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks in what promises to be an intense conference showdown. Fans of both teams are excited to see this prime time matchup.
As you probably know, Monday Night Football is hosted by ESPN on a weekly basis. Until recently, you needed to have cable to enjoy MNF live – but no longer. Today, you can watch the Lions vs. Seahawks live stream, plus every other MNF game of the season, live and on demand without the need for cable. Read on to learn about all of your legal options for streaming the Lions vs. Seahawks.
Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks Preview
Both teams have a solid lineup and recorded great performances in the 2014-2015 season. Unfortunately, both teams have also started this season very slowly.
The Detroit Lions finished last season 11-5, placing second in the NFC North. Their playoff dreams were crushed by the Dallas Cowboys, who beat them 24-20 in the Wild Card Game. With several valuable new additions and a new owner, the Lions are set up for a promising season. But will the Lions be up for the challenge of taking on the Seahawks?
The Seattle Seahawks had an excellent 2014-2015 season. They started off slow with a mediocre 3-3 record, but then went on to go 9-1 to finish the season, making it all the way to the Super Bowl. After a disappointing last-minute coaching decision, they lost the Super Bowl by just 4 points. They’ll need to make another early season turnaround if they hope to get back to the promised land this season.
