Lions offseason questions: Games to watch

The NFL released the 2024 schedule last week, giving us all a chance to sit back and look it over for division games, exciting matchups and yearly traditions.

There's a lot to like for the Lions this year including five primetime games.

Which game are you looking forward to most? I asked the crew, and here's what they had to say:

Tim Twentyman: Week 1 vs. Rams

Look no further than the rematch with Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams Week 1. The atmosphere in Ford Field for a Sunday night nationally televised season opener is going to be electric and could rival the playoff games.

It's a chance for the Lions to kick off the season on a good note against a team expected to be in the playoff picture in the NFC.

Mike O'Hara: Week 13 vs. Bears

The Bears and Lions meet in the traditional Thanksgiving Day game in Week 13 at Ford Field, and again three weeks later at Soldier Field. I look forward to those two games for a basic reason. They play good, tough football. It's part of the tradition of both teams. You can count on it.

Dannie Rogers: Week 6 at Cowboys

I'm looking forward to the rematch in Dallas. I know it's a game circled on a lot of players' and coaches' calendars because of the controversial ending last season. Dan Campbell is still looking for his first win as head coach against his home state.

Editor's Pick: Week 17 at 49ers

A chance to avenge the NFC Championship loss on the road on Monday Night Football. Add in potentially massive implications in this year's NFC playoff race and what more could a football fan ask for?

I expect we'll see plenty of Honolulu Blue at Levi's Stadium again for this one.
