The Detroit Lions struggled greatly down the final stretch of the regular season, which forced the team to miss the playoffs and now they must sit back and prepare for next year as they search for answers on exactly what went wrong.

So while we need to wait to find out exactly what date each game will go down, the opponents are set.
Here is a look at the Detroit Lions’ 2014 opponents:
