Monday Night Football Schedule 2012 Includes 2 Lions Games

A year ago, when the NFL schedule was announced, the big story for the Detroit Lions was the fact that they finally had a game on a Monday night. After going a decade without playing on ESPN's Monday Night Football, the Lions got the chance to take on the Chicago Bears on a Monday night. They won the game, thanks in part to the amazing atmosphere at Ford Field.

This year, the 2012 Monday Night Football schedule includes two Lions games -- one on the road and one at home. Interestingly, the home game in Week 16 will actually be played on a Saturday night since Christmas Eve is on a Monday that week.

Here's the full schedule:

Week 1: Bengals vs. Ravens

Week 1: Chargers vs. Raiders

Week 2: Broncos vs. Falcons

Week 3: Packers vs. Seahawks

Week 4: Bears vs. Cowboys

Week 5: Texans vs. Jets

Week 6: Broncos vs. Chargers

Week 7: Lions vs. Bears

Week 8: 49ers vs. Cardinals

Week 9: Eagles vs. Saints

Week 10: Chiefs vs. Steelers

Week 11: Bears vs. 49ers
