The wait is over! Today die-hard Detroit Lions fans rejoice and football widows begin to mourn a full five months before the NFL season kicks off in September. Today the full NFL Schedule is released at 8 pm and Lions fans will find out in which week their beloved Detroit Lions with play rivals and have primetime games. The NFL will also announce the Lions 2014 Thanksgiving Day opponent.
Of course the Lions already know one of their road games will be played in London on October 26th against the Atlanta Falcons. The game will not count as a home game for Detroit so the Lions will have a full 8 home games this year.
The Falcons are officially the home team for that London game, meaning they will play once less game in Atlanta this season.
So is the lucky break on the game in London a positive omen for the Lions season.
That all depends on how the schedule breaks out. If the Lions can get a favorable schedule down the stretch it may help them make a push in playoffs.
All the guess will be over today as the 2014 NFL Schedule is released at 8 pm.
