Sunday Night Football Schedule 2012 Includes 2 Lions Games

Just like the 2012 Monday Night Football schedule, the Detroit Lions also have two games featured on the 2012 Sunday Night Football schedule, both of which are on the road.

The Lions' first game on NBC in 2012 will come against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. This, of course, will be the first time the two teams have met since the infamous handshake incident between Jim Schwartz and Jim Harbaugh last season.

The Lions' other game on NBC is set for Week 14 against the Green Bay Packers. It will be played at Lambeau Field and is the first of two meetings between the Lions and Packers in a span of four weeks.
