Boosted by their first win of the season, Detroit welcomes New Orleans to Ford Field on Sunday - read on for full details on how to watch Saints vs Lions, no matter where you are in the world.

The last-gasp nature of the Lions 26-23 victory over the Arizona Cardinals last weekend will have given head coach Matt Patricia's cause to feel a bit more optimistic following his side's slow start.

Detroit's win, which brought to an end an 11-game losing streak, came off the back of a dogged defensive display, while quarterback Matt Stafford offered up his best game of the season on Sunday, notching up 270 passing yards with two touchdowns.

For the Saints, Sunday's game gives them an opportunity to get back on track after two straight losses.

Having started the season brightly with a promising win in their opener against Tampa Bay, their defense has started to show worrying cracks.

Thankfully they have an offense that has the potential to negate those shortcomings, having scored 30 points in two of the three games so far.

Veteran QB Drew Brees has clocked up an impressive 760 passing yards with a 6:1 TD to INT ratio, while running back Alvin Kamara has looked dangerous throughout the early stages of the campaign, registering 153 rushing yards with 285 receiving yards.

Read on as we explain below how to get a New Orleans Saints vs Detroit Lions live stream for Sunday's game.
