The Broncos are riding high, having taken down the rival Chargers in Week 14 to improve to 7-6 and right in the mix for both the AFC West crown or a wild card spot. 

The Lions, meanwhile, enter Week 15 after getting beat down by the Bears in Chicago. At 9-4 they remain in first place of the NFC North but are still a game back of the 49ers, Cowboys and Eagles for the top spot in the NFC. 

Kickoff in Detroit is called for 8:15 p.m. ET (5:15 p.m. PT) on NFL Network and local channels in the two teams areas. Here is how you can watch, even if the game isn't available on a local channel or if you don't have cable or a streaming service with NFL Network.

How to watch, livestream Broncos vs. Lions

This fixture is one of three games this Saturday that is exclusive to NFL Network. There are numerous options for accessing NFL Network, which we've listed below, but the most cost-effective way is via NFL Plus.

NFL Plus

NFL Plus, the NFL's own streaming service, lets you stream any local or national games regardless of whether they air on ABC, ESPN, CBS, Fox, NBC or Prime Video, however, those streams are limited to just watching on a phone or tablet. 

NFL Plus will also let you watch the ESPN Plus and Peacock exclusive games (though again, only on a phone or tablet). 

The service also includes NFL Network, meaning you can watch the football-focused channel as well as the eight exclusive NFL games it airs on your mobile device, computer, game console or TV with NFL Plus.

Sling TV's Blue plan includes NFL Network as well as NBC and Fox, though it does not have CBS, ABC or ESPN. Enter your address here to see which local channels are available where you live. NFL RedZone is also available for an extra $11 a month.

Note that to get ABC and ESPN, you'll need to switch to the similarly priced Orange plan (which drops Fox, NBC and NFL Network) or go for the combined $60 a month Orange and Blue bundle that includes channels from both packages. With the combined plan, the Sports Extra add-on, which has RedZone, is an extra $15 a month. 

One important caveat: In our experience, Fox local affiliates will only be available if your billing address is in one of the 18 metropolitan areas covered in Sling's agreement. If you're outside of one of these areas, you're probably better off going with one of the alternate services on this list.
