Lions' off week precedes second half of season

If there is an NFL season, and if the Detroit Lions continue the progress they showed in 2010, then the team's off week might fall at an opportune time.
The Lions are scheduled to play eight consecutive weeks and then have a week off before resuming their season at Chicago on Nov. 13.
That game with the Bears will start the second half of the season. The Lions' final eight games include two contests with Green Bay, a home game with always troublesome Minnesota and road trips to New Orleans and Oakland.
A break at the exact halfway point of the season might be perfect timing for the Lions, who'll finish the first half of the season at Denver.
Fans who go on the road with the team should have sun block and winter clothing at the ready.
The Lions start the season at Tampa on Sept. 11 and end it at Green Bay on Jan. 1.
