Lions' 2008 Schedule Released (UPDATED)

I'll have a full analysis of the schedule up tomorrow, but in the meantime, you can take a look at it below. Looking back on my predictions that I made earlier today, I was correct with three of them. The Lions will play the Bears twice in four weeks, will play Tennessee on Thanksgiving, and will play at Green Bay in December. The only one I got wrong was saying that Detroit would open the season at San Francisco, but hey, I was only two weeks off. Not bad if you ask me.

Anyways, here is Detroit's 2008 schedule:
