The weather forecast predicts sunny skies with a few fleeting clouds as the game approaches kickoff in the evening. The temperature is forecast to drop to 29°F, with winds ranging from 5 to 10 mph.

Detroit may have effectively won the division title on Sunday, thanks to Minnesota’s win over Green Bay, which moved them to 4-4 and second place in the North. The Vikings, on the other hand, have allegedly lost starting quarterback Kirk Cousins to a season-ending Achilles injury, potentially reducing their threat in the division.

While Las Vegas earned its first road win of the season in Denver, the team has struggled in their last three away games. Notably, starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo missed two of those defeats but is slated to play on Monday. The Raiders now sit in 13th place in the AFC and are in danger of missing the playoffs under embattled head coach Josh McDaniels.

Detroit is determined to bounce back from a painful setback to Baltimore last Sunday, and the NFL odds favor the Lions as substantial home favorites. For this primetime game, expect a raucous Halloween-themed crowd at Ford Field.
