Lions Vs. Saints, NFL Playoffs 2012: Game Schedule And More

The Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints are ready for primetime. The NFC Wild Card game between these two teams kicks off at 8:00 p.m. (ET) on NBC this Saturday.

The Saints are heavy favorites in this game and for good reason -- they're nearly unstoppable in the dome. The Saints haven't lost at home this year and Drew Brees is playing absolutely terrific football lately. He broke Dan Marino's record for passing yards in a season already so you can expect plenty of points in this one.

The Lions are the big underdogs but they really do have the formula to be competitive with the Saints. The defense has its issues but the Lions have a great defensive line that can create pressure on Drew Brees without sending a lot of extra players.

Judging by the experts' picks in this game, it's no surprise the Saints are huge favorites. Most expect New Orleans to win.
