2022 Detroit Lions post-NFL Draft Game-by-Game predictions

The 2022 NFL Draft is officially a wrap and, as expected, our Detroit Lions added some top-end talent to their roster, including Aidan Hutchinson and Jameson Williams, who were both selected in the opening round.

So, knowing the Lions roster as it stands today, along with other rosters around the league, here is how I believe the Lions would fare in 2022 if the season started today.

Here’s a breakdown of how each team’s opponents are set:

  • Six games against divisional opponents — two games per team, one at home and one on the road.
  • Four games against teams from a division within its conference — two games at home and two on the road.
  • Four games against teams from a division in the other conference— two games at home and two on the road.
  • Two games against teams from the two remaining divisions in its own conference — one game at home and one on the road. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season.
  • The new 17th game is an additional game against a non-conference opponent from a division that the team is not scheduled to play. Matchups are based on division ranking from the previous season.
