The Detroit Lions are rumored to be appearing in several primetime games this upcoming NFL season.

After a successful 2023 campaign, the organization has started to make significant financial commitments to players that are considered foundational roster pieces.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, Penei Sewell and Jared Goff have each earned hefty raises after showcasing what the organization has embodied the past three seasons.

Head coach Dan Campbell is among the most aggressive NFL head coaches, leading an offense that has become quite prolific.

Along with general manager Brad Holmes, the duo has become popular to interview by the national media, based on the tandem's outgoing and energetic outlook on the team and football. Expectations for the organization are at an all-time high.

Each year, the most popular games on the Lions' schedule are the season-opener, the home-opener and Detroit's annual Thanksgiving matchup.

Other anticipated matchups include contests with the Cowboys, the 49ers, the Rams and the Texans.
