Lions will play NFC East and AFC North in 2013

Posted by ttwentyman on July 17, 2012 – 1:27 pm

The NFL unveiled its 2013 scheduling formula today in its annual Record and Fact Book, and the Lions will play all four teams in the NFC East and AFC North in 2013.

The Lions will have home games against the Packers, Bears, Vikings, Cowboys, Giants, Ravens and Bengals. They’ll also play a home game against a yet-to-be-determined NFC South opponent (whichever team finishes in same position in their division as the Lions do in theirs).

The Lions will travel to the Packers, Bears, Vikings, Redskins, Eagles, Steelers and Browns and a yet-to-be-determined NFC West team.

Dates and times have not been set.

    This has got to be one of the toughest schedules possible. How is it the Lions never get any of the weaker divisions? It’s as if the league goes out of its way to make sure the Lions are thoroughly beat up by the end of the regular season. I just don’t understand how some teams get the most weaker opponents every season. The Patriots seem to top that list. If the Lions ever do make it to the Super Bowl, they’ll certainly have got there the hard way.

    with them coming out with 2013 schedules so soon one would have to think that football is a fixed sport like wrestling is .i hope that is not but with the teams that they will be facing it looks like they have the 2012 win total allreaady which based on the teams they will play 2012 record would be eather 8-8 or 7-9 .i would hope that football is not a fixed sport .it was way to early to put out which teams thet play in 2013 way to early if the lions do finsh 2012 8-8 or 7-9 it would be higher than what i expect them to win i figure they will be lucky to go 6-10

    the whole thing is the league has always given the lions the tough schedules difference now is they are capable of beating all these alleged top tier teams punk Azz giants included

    So what if we have the toughest schedule, I say suck it up, because football’s supposed to be tough. There’s nothing to complain about, and we can only get better by competing with teams better than us.

    Well i havent had much to say this summer about the team, but it sounds like the lions and coach schwartz are going to be ready for this season, these boys that are getting intotrouble need dicipline, ya dont hear any of the other teams, players getting into trouble, but if they have why dont the media focus on them as well, why does it always have to be the lions they pick really makes me mad to think the stupid media cant focus on someone else. just saying. i know the lions will play their heart out this year, so they can make it to the super bowl, i have faith in them and the coach.this reiff guy looks like he could be the whole team, he is huge , and i love it. and he is good at his moves, and he is quick. as far as avrill goes i hope he plays , and i hope he get,s a long tearm contract.he is good at what he does. i see the LIONS| GREENBAY game is sold out already, and the THANKSGIVING DAY GAME IS ALSO SOLD good is that. i like that idea.some day i will be abel to afford to come to a game. but as of right now, i dont see that happening.well i will close this letter , and cant wait till August to get here to watch the preseason games.Thank you Tim for reading my post.
