((STREAMS>)) Lions vs Vikings Live Broadcast Free 24 December 2023 Today

Lions vs Vikings FREE LIVE STREAM (12/24/2023): How to Watch NFL Week 16 Online, Time, TV, Channel. Midwest rivals Detroit and Minnesota meet at US Bank Stadium today in a game that could make or break the NFC North. Victory for the Lions would be enough for them to wrap up the division and clinch a playoff berth, while a Vikings win could set up a late twist, as these two teams are scheduled to play each other again in just two weeks.


The Lions bounced back from a two-game skid with an exhilarating 42-17 beatdown of the Broncos, in which Jared Goff threw for 278 yards and five touchdowns. However, that doesn't change the fact that Detroit have been dreadful on the road of late. They've given up 33 points per game in their last four road games, three of which were against struggling teams.

Squandering a 14-point lead against the Bengals last weekend has dropped the Vikings a spot to the No.6 seed in the conference, albeit with an identical record to three other teams. It's a precarious position and their recent form has been poor, but scratch the surface and you'll find plenty of signs of life.

Running backs Ty Chandler and Alexander Mattison have exploded into life, contributing an average of 132.3 yards over the last six games, while the return of Justin Jefferson gives Nick Mullens a genuine elite-level receiver to aim for.

Here’s what you need to know:

What: NFL, Week 16

When: Sunday, Dec.24, 2023

Where: U.S. Bank Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.


The games have been lurking at the end of Detroit’s schedule like a difficult end-of-semester final exam, two games against Minnesota in the last three weeks that ought to show just how far these on-the-rise Lions have progressed.

Despite a three-game lead on the Vikings in the NFC North with three games to play, the franchise’s first division title in 30 years is far from secured. The biggest test for the Lions (10-4) this season will come Sunday at Minnesota, where they haven’t won in six years.

The more you win, the more the pressure goes up, coach Dan Campbell said. When we’re at our best is when you have people gunning for you.

The fact the Vikings (7-7) are still in contention to defend the NFC North they ran away with last season has been a testament to coaching and chemistry, having lost quarterback Kirk Cousins nearly two months ago to a torn Achilles tendon and turned to three other starters since. Nick Mullens has the reins now, with a finally healthy Justin Jefferson leading his receiver crew after a severe hamstring strain sidelined him for five games and a chest injury kept him out for most of a sixth.

It’s all about beating the Lions. The playoffs are awesome, but if you don’t win, then the playoffs don’t matter, said Mullens, who passed for 303 yards, two touchdowns and two costly interceptions in last week’s overtime loss at Cincinnati.

The Lions just need to win once more to take the division and get their first home playoff game at Ford Field, which opened in 2002. But sandwiched in between the two matchups with Minnesota is a daunting Dec. 30 game at Dallas (10-4), which is busy trying to win its own division. The Vikings host Green Bay (6-8) in between the games against the Lions.

The pass rush will probably be pivotal in the outcome. Vikings defensive coordinator Brian Flores has a variety of unpredictable pressure packages to present quarterback Jared Goff.

I do feel very confident that we will have success, but they’re going to have successes in offense, Vikings coach Kevin O’Connell said. They do every single week, but can you just make it a little harder on them? Can you make it not as comfortable of a day to where they can really get it humming in both the run and pass phase?

Flores ran the New England defense in the dominant Super Bowl 53 performance against Goff and the Los Angeles Rams. Goff has thrown five interceptions against the blitz this season, the second-most in the NFL according to Sportradar data.

We don’t carry the weight of the last 30 years here. We don’t. It’s the 2023 Lions, and we’re different than last year’s team and the year before and 30 years before that, Goff said. So we’re trying to make our mark this year, and we have a chance to do it this week.

Lions general manager Brad Holmes has helped sparked the franchise’s turnaround, particularly his draft-day deals this year that netted them running back Jahmyr Gibbs and tight end Sam LaPorta with the 12th and 34th overall picks.

The Detroit Lions (10-4) are staring a history-making opportunity in the face when they face the Minnesota Vikings (7-7) with the NFC North crown on the line on Christmas Eve from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Detroit Lions are right where they wanted to be at this point of Year 3 under Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes. They’ve won 10 games on the year, with three left, and they are one away from clinching the franchise’s first division title since 1993-94. First, they need to go through the reigning champions of the NFC North on the road. The Vikings are on their fourth quarterback. But their defense is keeping them in the hunt.

The Detroit Lions (10-4) travel up Lake Michigan to face the Minnesota Vikings (7-7) in an NFC North contest from U.S. Bank Stadium in what is shaping up to be one of the more entertaining matchups of the entire Sunday slate.

The Lions have a chance to clinch the NFC North division for the first time in franchise history, while the Vikings are still hanging on their playoff hopes right behind them.

The Lions have quietly emerged as one of the top teams in the NFL this season, and won 42-17 in Week 15 in what was yet another dominant performance from Dan Campbell's side. With only three weeks remaining, they will aim to secure a home playoff game with a win here.

The Vikings, on the other hand, have had an roller coaster season themselves and through it all, still have a chance to make the playoffs, but they have had a rough go of things recently with just a 1-3 record over their last four games, losing 27-24 in overtime to the Bengals last Saturday.
