The Detroit Lions don’t necessarily have one of the easiest schedules this season.

Actually, it appears to be one of the more difficult ones in the NFL for 2015. Starting off with two road games doesn’t do the team any favors. Especially one being all the way in San Diego to take on the Chargers, then follow that up by heading to Minneapolis to face the Vikings. Then, they are home against the Denver Broncos, and back on the road again to visit the defending NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks. Follow that with three straight home games, then it’s off to London before the bye week to play the Kansas City Chiefs. Just the first half alone looks brutal. At home or not, the Cardinals and the Broncos will both be tough teams to contend with.

After the bye week, the team hits the road again to head into Lambeau. They come home to play the Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, and Green Bay Packers. Then it’s on the road again to St. Louis to play the Rams and New Orleans to go head-to-head with the Saints, back home for the San Francisco 49ers, and then the final game of the regular season to Chicago to face division rivals, the Bears.

I am going to run through and give you the top 5 Detroit Lions games I think will be the “must see” games. Of course, we are Lions fans, and will watch them all, but these are going to be key games for our beloved team.
