NFL season opener: Detroit Lions (0-0) vs. San Francisco 49ers (0-0)

When: 1 p.m. Sunday.

Where: Ford Field.

TV: Fox (Kevin Kugler, Mark Sanchez and Laura Okmin).

Radio: WXYT-FM (97.1; other radio affiliates).

Game notes: It's the first game of the Dan Campbell era for the Lions, who are also without quarterback Matthew Stafford on the roster for the first time since 2008. But another key offensive cog is missing: Taylor Decker. The left tackle is on the injured reserve with a finger injury. Detroit's hosts for the home opener is San Francisco, which was ravaged with injury in 2020, a year after reaching the Super Bowl. ... Here's how the Lions' schedule looks going forward.
