The NFL released the five teams that will “host” international games and where each of those teams will play. It opens the door for the Detroit Lions to perhaps have a game in Germany in 2023.
This year’s international schedule will have five AFC teams set to give up a home date to play across the Atlantic Ocean. The Bills, Jaguars, Patriots, Chiefs and Titans are those teams.
Detroit only has one road date slated against any of those teams: the Chiefs. It was also revealed that the Chiefs and the Patriots will host their overseas games in Germany.
The Lions were slated to play the Jaguars in London in 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic wiped out the international slate that season.
The dates and times of all the Lions games for 2023 will be announced later in the spring.
