The 2012 NFL regular season has reached it’s conclusion. The Detroit Lions came into the 2012 season with high expectations and were a trendy pick to return to the playoffs once again this year. Detroit struggled this season and failed to live up to the high expectations placed upon them this season after their success last season. The Lions have some serious issues to address in this offseason and are now looking ahead to the start of free agency as well as starting to prepare for the 2013 NFL Draft. Since the regular season is now over, the Detroit Lions also can look at their 2013 NFL regular season schedule. Dates and times will not be assigned to games until April.
