The Detroit Lions kick of the 2014 NFL football regular season on August 9th at home in their first preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. The Lions wrap up the preseason ticket on August 28th on the road against the Buffalo Bills before starting the regular season at home on September 8th against the New York Giants. The Lions hit the road in week 2 of the regular season to take on Cam Newton and the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium and enjoy a bye week during week 9 of the NFL regular season. Detroit’s final home game of the year is on December 14th against the Minnesota Vikings before the team hits the road for their final two games against the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. Matthew Stafford will be looking to try to lead the Lions back to the postseason this year after the team failed to live up to expectations last season by missing the 2014 NFL Playoffs.
