Detroit Lions would play zero preseason games under latest proposal

The Detroit Lions have already had their 2020 preseason schedule chopped in half, and now it looks as though there is a possibility that the remaining two games could be scrapped as well.

According to the latest return-to-play protocol negotiations Monday, the NFL reportedly offered to cancel all preseason games in the name of safety amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
