The NFL unveils the official schedule and sequence of 17 games on Wednesday night in a primetime spectacle. But we already know all the opponents the Detroit Lions will face in the 2021 season, and those 14 foes rank as one of the toughest slates in the entire NFL.
Based on projected win totals for the upcoming season, the Lions have a schedule that is tied for the ninth-hardest, per Pro Football Network. Playing the AFC North, which features three teams that made the 2020 postseason, and the powerful NFC West raise the stakes for the Lions, no matter the sequence of games.
Of course, the Lions own lowly projected win total–currently 5 at BetMGM—helps lower the sum for all of the teams on Detroit’s schedule.
