(CBS DETROIT) - The Detroit Lions released their 2024 season schedule on Wednesday.

The team released the new schedule in a video featuring comedians Tim Robinson and Sam Richardson.

Detroit starts its season against the Los Angeles Rams, whom it defeated in the first round of the 2023 season playoffs. On Thanksgiving, the team will face off against the Chicago Bears.

After losing to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship, the Lions will have another shot against the 49ers in Week 17. 

Detroit is looking to bring another powerful season after making it to the playoffs for the first time in over 30 years. The team mainly focused on its defense during the 2024 NFL Draft, selecting cornerbacks Terrion Arnold and Ennis Rakestraw Jr. and defensive tackle Mekhi Wingo.

Other draft picks included offensive lineman Giovanni Manu, running back Sione Vaki, and guard Christian Mahogany. 

Detroit released former starter Cameron Sutton after he was accused of domestic violence.
