The Lions haven't found themselves on at primetime too often over the last decade, but that appears set to chance, according to team president Tom Lewand.
Feels like a lot of prime time games for us when schedule comes out today. The most any team can have is 5. Any guesses?— Tom Lewand (@tomlewand) April 17, 2012
Due to last year's success, the Lions have suddenly become one of the must-see teams in the NFL. The combination of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson gives Detroit one of the more exciting offenses to watch in the league.
Their playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints was on a Saturday night.
The schedule will be released on the NFL Network tonight at 7:00 ET.
