Lions' 2014 preseason schedule announced

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 preseason schedule for the Detroit Lions has been announced.

The 2014 NFL preseason schedule was announced on Wednesday afternoon. Like always, specific dates and times for games not on national television weren't included in the announcement, but we now know the four teams the Detroit Lions will face in the 2014 preseason.

As usual, the Lions are set to meet the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. Since the Lions went to Cleveland last year, the Browns are headed to Ford Field this year, although the Lions are going to Buffalo for the second year in a row. The Lions will get to face Nate Burleson and the Browns in Week 1 of the preseason before closing things out in Week 4 against Jim Schwartz and the Bills.

The Lions' other two games will come against the Oakland Raiders (on the road in Week 2) and Jacksonville Jaguars (at home in Week 3).

Here's a look at the full 2014 Lions preseason schedule:
