Three in 12 days
Sunday game at Minnesota (7-1) is the start of a tough stretch for the Lions (1-7). It will be their first of three games in 12 days. Thats a ton. It happens every November due to the traditional Thanksgiving Day game.
Next Sunday (Nov. 22) theyre home to the dysfunctional Cleveland Browns (1-7) and then they face the hot-and-cold Green Bay Packers (4-4) on Turkey Day.
The Lions lost to the Vikings 27-13 on Sept. 20 and were embarrassed by the Packers 26-0 on Oct. 18. This would be a tough schedule for a veteran team with a few wins under its belt. It will be yet another huge challenge for the rebuilding Lions.
