The Detroit Lions weren’t quite good enough in 2013, as another missed bid for the playoffs ended head coach Jim Schwartz’s tenure and brought in the offensive-minded Jim Caldwell. Caldwell leads a more balanced approach and with the Lions still fairly stacked on both sides of the ball, he will try to right the ship in a very competitive NFC North.
Detroit endured most of it’s struggles on the road last year, and may find it to be a problem again in 2014 due to dates with the Falcons, Panthers, Cardinals, Patriots and Jets.
At home, however, the Detroit Lions schedule will hopefully be a little lighter with matchups against the Saints, Buccaneers, Giants, Bills and Dolphins. New Orleans should be a tough out like they always are, but the rest of Detroit’s home games appear to be winnable.
