On March 18th of this year, the Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams made a trade that shook up the football world. The Lions sent their franchise quarterback of 12 years and all-time leading passer, Matthew Stafford to the Rams for THEIR franchise QB, Jared Goff. The two square off Sunday in Los Angeles. 

Stafford has done well by L.A. rewarding them with the sixth highest scoring offense in the league and the fourth best passing attack. Individually Stafford is tied for third in the NFL with 16 passing touchdowns and his 116.6 passer rating is second only to Russell Wilson's 125.3. All this while leading the Rams to a 5-1 record and first place in NFC West. 

Goff's experience could not be more different or worse for that matter. The Lions are 0-6 on the season, while their offense is ranked 28th in the NFL. Detroit hasn't scored over 17 points since their 33-point performance in week one. Goff's numbers are what you would expect in an offense like that, bottom tier. He's ranked 22nd in passer rating (86.9). 

To make things worse for Goff, he's also been publicly challenged by his head coach Dan Campbell. "I feel like he needs to step up more than he has," Campbell told reporters after last week's 34-11 loss to the Bengals. "I think he needs to help us...He's going to need to put a little bit of weight on his shoulders here and its time to step up and make some throws and do some things." 

The Rams are HUGE 15-point favorites against the Lions. The over/under is 50.5. 

Rams Inactives: Bryce Perkins (QB), Chris Garrett (OLB), Alaric Jackson(OL), Tremayne Anchrum Jr. (OL), Brycen Hopkins (TE), Bobby Brown III (DL)

Lions inactives: Jermar Jefferson (RB), Jason Cabinda (FB), Trinity Benson (WR), Eric Banks (DL), Jesse Lemonier (EDGE), Mark Gilbert (CB), Dean Marlow (DB)

In the US, Lions vs Rams is going to be broadcast on FOX, which is available with most cable packages and on two of our favorite streaming services fuboTV and Sling TV

The game starts at 4:05 p.m. ET / 1:05 p.m. PT Sunday (Oct. 24).

If FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network have typically been enough to get you all the football you need, you could rely on Sling (which doesn't include CBS, and RedZone is available with the Sports Extra add on). You can get your local CBS NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $50 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $65 per month.
