Detroit Lions Schedule

After going from having games at home being blacked out, in two years things have drastically changed.  This upcoming season the Lions will have two Sunday Night Primetime games, two Monday Night Football games, and the traditional thanksgiving day game.  For those of you keeping score, that is five nationally televised game, which has to be a record for the organization.

Week 1: September 9th Detroit Lions vs. St. Louis Rams 1:00 p.m.

Week 2: September 16th Detroit Lions @ San Fransisco 49ers 8:20 p.m. NBC

Week 3: September 23rd Detroit Lions @ Tennessee Titans 1:00 p.m.

Week 4: September 30th Detroit Lions vs. Minnesota Vikings 1:00 p.m.

Week 5: Bye Week

Week 6: October 14th Detroit Lions @ Philadelphia Eagles 1:00 p.m.

Week 7: October 22nd Detroit Lions @ Chicago Bears 8:30 p.m. MNF

Week 8: October 28th Detroit Lions vs. Seattle Seahawks 1:00 p.m.

Week 9: November 4th Detroit Lions @ Jacksonville Jaguars 1:00 p.m.

Week 10: November 11th Detroit Lions @ Minnesota Vikings 1;00 p.m.

Week 11: November 18th Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers 1:00 p.m.

Week 12: November 22nd Detroit Lions vs. Houston Texans 12:30 p.m.

Week 13: December 2nd Detroit Lions vs. Indianapolis Colts 1:00 p.m.

Week 14: December 9th Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers 8:20 p.m. NBC

Week 15: December 16th Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals 1:00 p.m.

Week 16: December 22nd Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons 8:30 p.m. MNF

Week 17: December 30th Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears 1:00 p.m.

Looking at this with a quick glance I think the Lions scored a very favorable schedule.  Jacksonville and Indy should be a couple of free games, and I think it will be very easy for them to make it to 10 wins yet again.  Obviously the Packers, Eagles, Texans, 49ers and Falcons will be tough teams to play,  but by no means are these automatic losses.  My expectations for this year are of course assuming that everyone stays healthy and Calvin Johnson isn’t on the cover of Madden 13.  If you don’t want the Lions season to be ruined, go and vote.  Bottom line, I’m beyond excited for this upcoming season and this schedule makes me wish it was football season right now.
