Is the Lions prepared for prime time?


Sep 2, 2023

When we last saw the Lions, they had just prevented Aaron Rodgers and the Packers from making it to the playoffs in the final game of the 2022 regular season. Now, just five nights away, the Lions are gearing up for their first game of the 2023 season against the Chiefs. The question on everyone’s mind is, are they ready to face such a formidable opponent?

It’s worth noting that the Lions didn’t have the smoothest start in 2022. They struggled with a 1-6 record initially but managed to turn things around and came close to securing a playoff spot. Despite knowing they had no chance of making it to the playoffs, they played with great intensity in the Week 18 Sunday night game and successfully kept the Packers out.

Now, the Lions face another tough challenge as they take on the Chiefs on the night they raise their banner. This will test their mettle and determine if they can continue their winning streak. Additionally, three weeks later, they will face the Packers once again at Lambeau Field, marking the first of their two games against their long-standing rivals in 2023.

Looking ahead, the Lions have an exciting Monday night home game on Week 8 against the Raiders, which falls on the night before Halloween. They also have a Saturday night game at Dallas for Week 17. What’s even more intriguing is the expanded flex options for 2023, which means there could be even more exciting matchups for the Lions. However, for them to be considered for flexing, it would mean they are having a successful season.

It seems that the Lions are experiencing an unusual wave of preseason hype. Whether it’s stemming from their victorious regular-season finale or the anticipation of finally being consistently successful, or the beloved coach Dan Campbell, they are attracting attention as the new season approaches. The real test, though, lies in their ability to win, particularly in the early-season prime-time tests that will reveal whether they are a genuine threat or simply the same old team that hasn’t won a playoff game since George H.W. Bush was in office.
