The Detroit Lion host the San Francisco 49ers today in a matchup of true NFC contenders.

Both of these teams are surprises, and both of these teams are for real.

This game will be a big test for the 49ers to see if they can overcome a season-ending injury to emerging WR Josh Morgan.

More than that, this is a test for both teams to prove that they are worthy of their division-leading titles.
