With just two games remaining for the Detroit Lions in the 2018 season, it’s time to start looking towards the offseason and the 2019 campaign.
That being said, I was surfing the web and happened to stumble across the Lions’ 2019 regular season schedule, at least what we know of it. This season, the Lions played the AFC East and the NFC West. In 2019, they will face the AFC West and the NFC East.
With that being said, here is a look at the Detroit Lions’ 2019 Regular season opponents, according to Pro Football Reference. The final two opponents will be determined based off of the 2018 regular season standings.

It’s obviously WAY too early to start making game-by-game predictions, but what do you think about next year’s schedule compared to this year?
Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap
Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.
The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.
Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.
As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
