Post Breaking down the schedule
Breaking down the schedule

April 14, 2005

Highlights of the Lions' schedule:

Detroit will be on national TV twice in the regular season, including a matchup on Fox with Atlanta's Michael Vick on Thanksgiving at Ford Field.

The Lions also play an ESPN Sunday night game at Green Bay on Dec. 11 and an ABC "Monday Night Football" exhibition vs. St. Louis at Ford Field Aug. 29. Looks like we get a chance to redeem ourselves for that debacle a couple years ago

They have a tough final month with three of four on the road -- at Green Bay, New Orleans and Pittsburgh, who were a combined 33-15 last year.

Before the final month, the Lions have it easier. Three of their five non-divisional road games (at Tampa Bay, at Cleveland and at Dallas) are against teams that were below .500 last year.

The Lions have the earliest bye week -- Sept. 25, in Week 3.

NFC North teams play against the AFC North (Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh) this season. Detroit went 1-3 against the AFC South last season.

Detroit vs. Everybody
Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to the right....
