Detroit Lions Schedule
The Detroit Lions are ready to roar on the road this season as they take on some of the
top teams that the National Football League has to offer. The Lions are coming off a disappointing 2013 season in which they
failed to make the playoffs, which resulted in a coaching change this offseason. The Lions boast one of the most dynamic offensive
attacks in the entire National Football League, something that makes them a threat to beat any given team on any day. Calvin
Johnson is considered by most fans to be the best wide receiver in the NFL, and puts up the numbers to back it up. Quarterback
Matthew Stafford has continued to look Johnson's way on a weekly basis, and for good reason. With running back Reggie Bush
looking like the player many people thought he could be, this Lions offense looks as dynamic as any in the league. That should
help greatly when the Lions take the field at their home stadium in 2014.
The Lions have their sights set on the NFC
North division title this season, which means they're going to have to take care of business against divisional opponents.
The Lions take on the Packers, 2013's NFC North champs, on September 21st for what will be a massive matchup. The Packers
have a good enough offense to match that of the Lions, something that Detroit will not encounter very often. Green Bay has
one of the top signal callers in the league in Aaron Rodgers, a player capable of picking apart a defense with ease. The Lions
will also have to worry about second-year running back Eddie Lacy, who had a fantastic rookie season, giving Green Bay the
running game they packed for several seasons prior to the Alabama's product's arrival. If the Lions can take down the Packers
this season, it could be what swings the division race come season's end.
Detroit will have another tough divisional
road game on their hands when they take on the Chicago Bears on November 27th. The Bears are another club with a dynamic offense,
one headlined by quarterback Jay Cutler. Cutler has two big, physical receivers to play with in Brandon Marshall and Alshon
Jeffery, players that cause matchup nightmares for just about any defense. If the Lions can slow down this dangerous passing
attack, they'll have a decent shot at taking home a victory. It should be another thrilling season of football for the Lions,
so check out the full home schedule.
Detroit Lions Team Info
The Detroit Lions are looking to get their
hands on the NFC North title in 2014, and this is a team that has the kind of talent to make that happen. The Lions boast
one of the most prolific offensive attacks in the National Football League, and there may be no better wide receiver in the
game right now than Calvin Johnson. Johnson put up another huge season in 2013, and is just two years removed from breaking
the single-season record for receiving yards, once held by the immortal Jerry Rice. A big boost to the offense arrived last
season in the form of shifty running back Reggie Bush and the Lions are looking for the former second overall pick to put
up another big year in Detroit. If the Detroit defense can hold up, the Lions should be able to make a return to the postseason.
Seeing a National Football League game in person is one of the most coveted sports experiences
that a football fan can have. There's something magical about Sunday (or Thursday/Monday) when the best in the game suit up
to take the field for four quarters of a battle that will last in the hearts of the fans for a long, long time. When you're
there in your seat in the stadium, you'll feel the incredible atmosphere in the air, one rife will excitement and anticipation.
Come kickoff the roar of the crowd will take over, and you'll find yourself in a sea of fans that wouldn't want to be anywhere
Detroit Lions History
Detroit Lions tickets have been on the market since 1934, when the Portsmouth
Spartans moved to the city and renamed themselves the Lions. They experienced immediate success, winning the NFL title in
1935. They won additional titles in 1952, 1953 and 1957, setting the tone for a great franchise. Since the early days, though,
the Lions haven't exactly been without their fair share of memorable moments, though they're still looking to get to the top
of the league and take down that coveted Super Bowl title. Great players like Barry Sanders, Scott Mitchell, Herman Moore
and many more have played for the team since their early success, and you never know who is going to break through to superstar
status next for the Lions.
Detroit Lions Trivia
Do you know that Barry Sanders made it to the Pro Bowl
every single season in his career?
Starting in 1989, nobody played the position of running back better than Sanders,
who took the league by storm and was a nightmare for defenders for all ten of his seasons in the NFL. He rushed for more than
15,000 yards and scored 109 touchdowns rushing and receiving.
