Detroit Lions' 2020 Schedule Released

Here is the Detroit Lions' 2020 home and away schedule

The Detroit Lions' 2020 regular season schedule has officially been released. 

Earlier on Thursday, it was revealed that Detroit would open the season against the Chicago Bears at home. 

The importance of securing a victory Week 1 at home is heightened, since Detroit will be going on the road the following week to face another divisional foe in the Green Bay Packers. 

NBC Houston's Vanessa Richardson also reported on Thursday that Detroit will be hosting the Houston Texans on Thanksgiving this year.

The organizations also squared off against each other on Thanksgiving eight years ago. 

Houston survived a wild contest, winning 34-31. 

Both the Texans and Lions missed field goals in overtime, but it was Houston that kicked the game-winner in overtime.

Let's take a look now at the complete 2020 Lions schedule: 

Week 1 - Sunday, Sep. 13 — vs. Bears
