49ers Vs. Lions TV Schedule: Niners Sunday Night Matchup Highlights Week 2

The San Francisco 49ers take on the Detroit Lions Sunday night in a rematch from Week 6 of the 2011 season, a game that was notable both for the intensity of the play and for the intensity of the post-game handshake between coaches Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz.

Both teams are coming off opening-week victories, with the 49ers upsetting the Green Bay Packers in a game where the defense was as fierce as expected and Alex Smith played better than many had expected. Smith was 26-20 for 211 yards and two touchdowns, including one to Randy Moss, who just may be the deep threat San Francisco has been lacking. The Lions also won their Week 1 game, beating the St. Louis Rams on a late touchdown drive by Matthew Stafford, 27-23.

Game Time: 5:20 p.m. PT
