Syndication: Detroit Free Press Kirthmon F. Dozier / USA TODAY NETWORK

The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Detroit Lions are officially set to kick off their 2022 season against the Philadelphia Eagles at 1 p.m. ET on Fox. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 on the road at the Minnesota Vikings.

The Lions went 3-13-1 in the 2021 season and finished last in the NFC North. They were active in free agency, but their most significant signing was wide receiver D.J. Chark on a one-year deal. Detroit had two top-10 picks in the draft. They selected Michigan DE Aidan Hutchinson with the first, and with the second, they picked Alabama WR Jameson Williams. We will see a new Detroit team in 2022, and there is excitement around the squad.

All times listed are Eastern.
