DETROIT, Mich. (WILX) - The Detroit Lions will open up the 2023 NFL season on the road against the reigning Super Bowl champions on WILX. The Lions will face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on NBC’s Thursday Night Football on Sept. 7. The Chiefs will be raising their Super Bowl LVII championship banner in Arrowhead Stadium prior to kick-off.

The Lions and Chiefs will kick off at 8:20 p.m. and it marks the second primetime game for Detroit in years after largely being shut out of the primetime slot in the 2022-23 season.

Detroit has momentum heading into the upcoming season after winning 8 of their last 10 games last year - including a statement win in Green Bay that kept their rival Packers out of the playoffs.

The rest of the NFL schedule will come out Thursday night in a primetime release.
