Lions 2018 opponents set

Posted Jan 1, 2018

With the conclusion of the 2017 regular season, next year's opponents have been set.

The Detroit Lions’ 2018 home and away opponents are all set with the conclusion of the regular season.

The Lions play the four teams in the NFC West and the AFC East in next year’s annual rotation of division matchups.

Along with their usual home and away games against NFC North opponents – Green Bay, Chicago and Minnesota - the Lions will also travel to San Francisco, Arizona, Dallas, Miami and Buffalo.

The Lions will host Los Angeles (Rams), Seattle, Carolina, the New York Jets and New England.

The Dallas and Carolina intraconference games were determined by their finish in the NFC East and NFC South. The Lions finished second in the NFC North behind Minnesota (13-3) with a 9-7 record, and play Carolina and Dallas because both of those teams finished second in their respective divisions.

The full NFL schedule will be released sometime in April.
