Detroit Lions Opponents Recap: Week 7

The Detroit Lions take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday before having a week off. It will be a much-needed week off considering how tough the second half of the schedule is. The Lions come back from the bye with a game at the Bears, a game at home against a Panthers team that is much better than their record suggests and then the Packers and Saints in back-to-back games. The season continues with the Vikings, Raiders, Chargers and a game at Lambeau Field against the Packers to close out the season.

Needless to say, the Lions have a tough road ahead. Here's a look at how their future opponents fared in Week 7:
