The Detroit Lions and the rest of the NFL will release the entire 2022 schedule at 8 p.m. ET on Thursday night. But throughout the day, several games will leak along the way, allowing us to slowly build out the schedule before the official release. That’s what this post is for.

We already know the 17 opponents the Lions will be facing this year. That much is laid out by a pretty standard process. This year, the Lions will have their normal six divisional games, they’ll play every team in the NFC East, and every team in the AFC East. Additionally, they have a bonus home game against an AFC opponent (Jaguars) thanks to the recent move to a 17-game schedule.

As a reminder, here are the home and away opponents for the 2022 season.

Home opponents: Bears, Packers, Vikings, Eagles, Commanders, Bills, Dolphins, Seahawks, Jaguars
Away opponents: Bears, Packers, Vikings, Cowboys, Giants, Patriots, Jets, Panthers

We’ll be adding the rumors to the tracker below as they come in, so stick right here and keep hitting that refresh button until 8 p.m. ET.

NOTE: There will be a lot of false rumors that spread in the next 12 hours, so we will only be adding rumors from trusted sources to our tracker.
