Leach's Ridiculously Early Lions Season Record Prediction Based On 2015 Schedule Release

It might only be late April, but Lions fans everywhere salivated when the 2015 schedule was released on Tuesday night featuring some history for the Honolulu Blue and Silver.

The Lions will play two true Monday Night Football games (Week 4 at Seattle and Week 15 at New Orleans) for the first time in the same season since 1998.

They also will play on Sunday Night Football at Ford Field against the Broncos in Week 3, a Thursday Night football game against Division rival Green Bay at Ford Field Week 13, and have nationally televised games against the Chiefs in London Week 8 and the annual Thanksgiving Day Classic against the Eagles.

The start of the season will be super important as the Lions could easily go 1-3 if they are not careful and will only be playing at home once in the first four weeks of the season. Then the Lions could make some hay with three straight home games from weeks 5 though 7.

This is pre-draft, pre-Matt Stafford's Wedding, and pre-insanity, but here is where I have the Lions finishing the 2015 regular season. It is definitely never too early to start dreaming of the NFL regular season- that's for sure!

No matter what happens - Detroit having six nationally televised games is something to be celebrated in a city that in many years over the last two plus decades has only had one.
