The Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals are underway from University of Phoenix Stadium.

This is far from "game of the week" territory, don't try telling either side that this game is effectively meaningless. Sure, the playoff implications are nil, the viewership will be low and only Lions are Cardinals fans are likely to watch.

But that doesn't mean this won't be a fun one to watch, and hey, maybe we'll get a first look at someone likely to be a major player for one of these teams next year, or a front-row seat for history.

Barring that, maybe it'll be entertainingly ugly.

Either way, I'll be here to cover the action when it starts at 4:05 ET on Fox. If you haven't quit on your team yet, I encourage you to follow along.

Final Score: Lions 10, Cardinals 38
