The Detroit Lions schedule was released last week, and the bookmakers don’t expect much from the Lions early on in the offseason. The over/under, according to Vegas line makers is 7.5 wins. Detroit opens the season on Monday Night against the New York Jets and closes the season on December 30th against their division rival Packers in Green Bay. The Lions will also face the Dallas Cowboys on the road, Carolina Panthers at home, and all four AFC East and NFC West teams to complete their 16-game schedules. The traditional Thanksgiving Day game will feature Detroit hosting division rival Chicago on CBS. Lions fans won’t have to wait long for new head coach Matt Patricia to face off against his former team, as the Patriots travel to Ford Field for a Week 3 matchup against Detroit on NBC’s Sunday Night Football September 23rd. Below is the full schedule for Detroit:
