NFL schedule 2012: Lions host Packers to begin short homestand

Andy King

The Detroit Lions begin a three-game home stand on Sunday by hosting the Green Bay Packers.

Having spent most of the season away from Ford Field, the Detroit Lions will have the benefit of playing the majority of their remaining games at home this season. That starts this week with Sunday afternoon's match-up against the Green Bay Packers, a team that's been playing particularly well of late.

The rest of the schedule isn't kind to Detroit even if the Lions will have home field advantage most of the time, as they'll often be playing one of the better teams in the league. After hosting the Packers, the Lions stay at Ford Field for back-to-back games against the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts, two quality teams from the AFC South.

The homestand is followed up by two road games against the Packers and Arizona Cardinals before the season finishes up with the Atlanta Falcons and Chicago Bears coming to town in late December. It's a schedule that doesn't see an easy week, although the Cardinals have been reeling (five straight losses) since a hot start.
