Lions' 2014 schedule taking shape

Gregory Shamus

The Detroit Lions' opponents for 2014 are set, and their schedule is beginning to take shape.

With the 2013 regular season in the books, the Detroit Lions' 2014 schedule is now set when it comes to their opponents for next year. 14 of their games were already set going into this past season, and we simply needed to wait and see which team the Lions would match up with from the NFC East and which team they would match up with from the NFC West.

With the standings finalized for the 2013 season, the Lions' list of opponents for 2014 looks like this:

Home opponents: Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants

Away opponents: Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons (in London), Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Arizona Cardinals

It's worth noting that the Lions' game against the Falcons in London will take place in Week 8 on Oct. 26, meaning Detroit's bye will be held in Week 9. It's also worth noting that the Lions will host either the Bills or Dolphins on Nov. 27 if the NFL sticks to its normal rotation by having CBS broadcast the Thanksgiving game.

The Lions' full 2014 schedule, complete with dates and start times, should be announced in April.
