After hours of schedule leaks on NFL Schedule Reveal Day, the Detroit Lions officially have their regular season schedule for 2021.
Thought it is a rebuilding season, there are a couple games that strike out as intriguing for new-look Lions.
First three weeks start out with some interesting games as they kick off their season at home against the San Francisco 49ers and then the following week, they’ll travel to Green Bay’s Lambeau Field for Monday Night Football in possible revenge (and Lions’ only primetime) game against the Packers.
Detroit’s annual Thanksgiving game will be against rookie quarterback Justin Fields and divisional rival Chicago Bears on Thursday, November 25, 2021.
Aside from their aforementioned and normal divisional matchups, a few other notable games include Week 3 home matchup versus 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens, the Lions facing their former quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7 at LA, and their matchup with their 17th opponent, the Denver Broncos, on December 12.
Lions fans and fellow football fans, which games are you excited about the most?
