The draft comes in two weeks exactly. According to Lions president Rod Wood, the release of the 2017 regular-season schedule is coming in one week exactly.

Via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Wood said Thursday at the unveiling of the team’s new uniform that the team’s new schedule (along with everyone else’s) comes next Thursday.

The who and the where of the 256 games already is know. But the when drives plenty of interest as fans await information as to a wide variety of details, from the high-profile games to the configuration of byes to the placement of the short-week obligation that each team receives once per year.

    Love em or hate em, the folks at the NFL are master marketers. They manage to drum up interest just by releasing a schedule of games AFTER we all know who will be playing each other.

    My wish for more home games than road games in December for my team.
    And please a HOME game on the Sunday before their Thursday game.
    Even better have the BYE prior to the Thursday game. 🙂

    Will Vegas have an over/under on the following?:

    Over/Under on how many 4:25 games the Cowboys get: 7.5

    Over/Under on Patriots Sunday Night Games: 2.5

    Over/Under on the two LA teams/NY teams/Bay Area teams
    playing at the same time despite the “exclusive” rule: 4.5

    Over/Under on crossflexed games: 9.5

    Hey they’re taking bets on the draft, might as well take bets for the schedule, no?
