NFL Schedule Release 2014: Full Detroit Lions Schedule Leaked

The NFL will release the full 2014 regular season schedule later tonight but the Detroit Lions schedule is known ahead of that time thanks to the Detroit Free Press.

Week 1: vs New York Giants (Monday Night Football)
Week 2: at Carolina
Week 3: vs. Green Bay
Week 4: at New York Jets
Week 5: vs. Buffalo
Week 6: at Minnesota
Week 7: vs. New Orleans
Week 8: Atlanta in London
Week 9: Bye
Week 10: vs. Miami
Week 11: at Arizona
Week 12: at New England
Week 13: vs. Chicago (Thanksgiving)
Week 14: vs. Tampa Bay
Week 15: vs. Minnesota
Week 16: at Chicago
Week 17: at Green Bay

The NFL had previously announced that the Lions and Falcons would meet in London in week 8, with each team getting their bye the next week.

The Bears as the Thanksgiving opponent breaks the alternating nature of AFC and NFC opponents. The pattern would have had the Lions hosting the Buffalo Bills or Miami Dolphins after hosting the Green Bay Packers a year ago but the NFL is going in a different direction for 2014.

The team’s preseason schedule was released earlier in the month.
