The New Orleans Saints are back at home in the dome this week to take on the Detroit Lions.

This will be 26th time that these two franchises will face one another in the regular season with 14 of those games having been decided by a touchdown or less. New Orleans currently has a 9-5 home record against the Lions.

The Saints will head into this game with a 5-6 record, sitting in 2nd place in the NFC South after losing to the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday. The Lions sit atop the NFC North at 8-3, but a 3-game winning streak snapped on Thanksgiving with a 29-22 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Kickoff is at 12 noon and the game will be broadcast on FOX with Joe Davis (play-by-play), Daryl Johnston (color analyst) and Pam Oliver (sideline)
