For the second time within the final three seasons, the Detroit Lions may have as many primetime video games as you and I, zero.
The shortage of nationwide publicity doesn’t appear to trouble second-year Lions coach Dan Campbell, who seems prepared and keen to embrace the stink that comes with going 3-13-1.
“It’s superior,” Campbell stated Saturday by way of the Detroit Free Press. “You knock them out, you go dwelling, you prepare for the following opponent. You’re not ready all day within the lodge, all evening, and then you definately go up and now you’re on a brief week it seems like.”
That’s a technique of taking a look at it.
15 of Detroit’s 17 video games are slated to kickoff at 1:00 PM. A sixteenth sport, on Thanksgiving, will get underway a half hour earlier at 12:30 PM. The Lions’ last sport of the season, versus Inexperienced Bay, doesn’t but have a sport time listed.
Other than briefly basking within the enjoyment of a comparatively routine schedule, Campbell insisted he hasn’t put a lot thought into Detroit’s slate of video games.
“I’ll be trustworthy with you, I haven’t even digested it that a lot. I checked out it final week after which we had been preparing for the rookies,” Campbell informed the Detroit Free Press. “Simply from a look, I imply it’s, I’ve no arguments. I believe it appears to be like nice. I didn’t suppose we’d open with Philly. We all the time do these issues upstairs. It’s like, ‘All proper, who do you suppose we’re opening with? Who’re we taking part in on Thanksgiving? Are we dwelling or are we away?’ So I wouldn’t have guessed Philly, but it surely doesn’t matter, it’s good.”
That marks the primary time Lions and good have been related to each other in fairly some time. NFL schedule makers confirmed as a lot.
