Detroit Lions schedule: Surprise season ends with win over Packers

The Detroit Lions are in a huge rebuild, but how many games on their 2021 schedule are realistically winnable? Check out our projected record for the Lions.

All our predictions for the 2022-2023 season were based on the Lions keeping and starting these key players.

Detroit Lions schedule roster outlook

The Lions have provided Goff with the necessary weapons to turn around his career. That included signing Chark from the Jacksonville Jaguars. The LSU product recorded 126 receptions for 1,714 yards in 2019-20 before missing all but four games to injury last season.

We also love the selection of Williams in a trade-up to the 12th pick in this year’s NFL Draft. They’ll team up with St. Brown to form a potent trio. With Swift and Hockenson doing their thing, the Lions should improve big time on offense.

Even after selecting EDGE rusher Aidan Hutchinson as No. 2 overall, the Lions’ defense still leaves a lot to be desired. Expect a ton of high-scoring games with Detroit being more competitive than in the past.
