Detroit Lions 2022 Regular Season opponents if the schedule was made after Week 9

Let’s face it, the Detroit Lions are not going to make the playoffs in 2021 so we thought it would be fun to start looking ahead towards the 2022 season.

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.

Here is a look at what the Lions 2022 opponents would look like if the season ended today.
