Detroit Lions Schedule 2018 Lions Schedule

5-9, 4th NFC North

vs MIN

6:00 pm UTC, 12/23

Detroit has always been one of those teams to lose the games they shouldn’t, and win the games they should lose. Unfortunately for the Lions, the Vikings and Packers are likely going to be a top of the division, although Detroit can be within a win or two come the end of the season. The Lions will need to get off on the right foot facing the Jets and 49ers for the first two weeks. After that they get New England, but then go on the road against Dallas for a potential win. A 3-1 start would be huge before facing Green Bay at home. The Lions then get Miami and Seattle before a road matchup against Minnesota. Once again, this is an area where the Lions need to take care of business before going up against the Vikings who are threats to go deep into the playoffs this season. After this part of the schedule, things get tricky. Detroit faces Chicago, Carolina, then Chicago again. With the Bears being a more improved team this year, it is not likely Detroit can steal both games. Carolina at home is one the Lions can win, but another toss-up. They then face the Rams, Cardinals, and Bills. The Rams is one you can lose if you take care of the next two, especially on the road against Buffalo. It often comes down the stretch, but the Lions face the Vikings and Packers in the last two weeks of the season, and over the last few we have seen that Lions-Packers game become very relevant.
