Lions open preseason vs. Falcons

The NFL won't release its full 2009 schedule for another couple of weeks, but the league announced its preseason slate of games Monday (teams will fill in the exact dates in the coming days/weeks).

The Lions host the Falcons, the team that started them on their road to infamy last regular season, in the exhibition opener Aug. 13-17. They travel to Cleveland in preseason Week 2, Aug. 20-24, host Indianapolis (when Peyton Manning actually should play)
the following week, Aug. 27-31, and close the preseason at Buffalo either Sept. 3 or 4.

Last year, they went undefeated in the preseason before stumbling to the NFL's first ever 0-16 record.

The regular season schedule will be released sometime before the draft.

The Lions started last season against the Falcons and it didn't go so well. Can that be turned around, or will this be part deux in a continuing story of winlessness.
