ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Lions will open the season with a home Monday night game against the New York Giants.

The Lions announced their 2014 schedule Wednesday night. The Sept. 8 game against the Giants will mark the first time Detroit begins the season in prime time since 1991, when the Lions opened with a Sunday night game at Washington. The last time Detroit opened on Monday night was in 1971 against Minnesota.

Detroit will host the Chicago Bears in the Lions' annual Thanksgiving game. It will be the 16th Thanksgiving meeting between the Lions and Bears.

The Lions will play the Atlanta Falcons in London on Oct. 26 as part of the NFL's International Series.
