NFL schedule 2012: Lions to host Andrew Luck and Indianapolis in Week 13

The Detroit Lions will try to bounce back against another AFC opponent with Indianapolis in town for a Week 13 game.


Desperate to get back in the win column and avoid their fourth consecutive loss, the Detroit Lions will take on a playoff-bound Indianapolis Colts team this Sunday from Ford Field.

The Lions have now dropped three straight games after evening their record at 4-4 back in early November, and are now a serious longshot to make the postseason even if they somehow manage to win all five of their remaining games. Despite not being suspended by the league for making a kicking action at the groin of Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in his team's Thanksgiving Day loss, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's reputation still continues to take a hit due to his completely reckless mindset on the field.

While the Lions are busy with the Colts in Week 13, the rest of the division will be eager to claw out victories with tough games. The first-place Chicago Bears will host a 6-5 Seattle Seahawks team that is hoping to get back into the playoff picture, as the Vikings and Packers collide in a rivalry game between organizations currently in possession of NFC Wild Card spots.
