DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit Lions are in the national spotlight Monday night, with a spot in the postseason on the line.

The Lions will take on the Baltimore Ravens during a “Monday Night Football” showdown at Ford Field. With so much riding on the contest, Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford says he’s looking forward to the game.

“Yeah, Monday night’s fun,” Stafford said. “It’s a blast. Our fans do a great job, or they did last time we had it here, of coming out and supporting us and making it tough for the other team. You know it’s a big one for us and not only because it’s on Monday night, but just the situation that both teams are in in the season, and we’re looking forward to.”

Lions fans don’t want to see this happen, but if they lose tonight’s game, they’ll fall from first place to third in the NFC North, with just two games left to play in the regular season.

Tonight’s marquee matchup will mark the first time the Lions have played “Monday Night Football” at Ford Field since 2011.
