COMPLETE Detroit Lions 2017 Schedule

Detroit Lions 2017 Schedule

The 2017 Detroit Lions Schedule has been released. The Lions look to have 2 Monday night games (Giants and Greenbay), a Sunday night game against Pittsburgh, a Saturday game IN Chicago mid-December and a faceoff against the Vikings on Thanksgiving day.

Check out the schedule below and let us know what you think in the comments!



“Flexible scheduling” will be used in Weeks 10-15 and 17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-9, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday, Saturday or Monday nights. A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 31.

“Cross-Flex”: For the fourth-consecutive year, a select number of games are being “cross-flexed,” moving between CBS and FOX to bring potentially under-distributed games to wider audiences.
