The regular-season schedule is expected to be released in the next couple weeks.
The Lions' other exhibition game at home will in Week 3 (Aug. 21-24) against former Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The third game is generally considered somewhat of a dress rehearsal for the regular season, with the starters getting their most playing time of the preseason.
Detroit's two exhibition road games will be against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2 (Aug. 14-18) and the Buffalo Bills on Aug. 28 in Week 4.
Buffalo, which hired former Lions coach Jim Schwartz as its new defensive coordinator, is also scheduled to face Detroit during the regular season at Ford Field, possibly on Thanksgiving Day.
None of the Lions' preseason games are slated for national television.
