Lions Home Opener Sells Out

lions new logo1 e1284747570477 Lions Home Opener Sells OutThanks to a 24 hour extension given by the NFL, the Detroit Lions home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles will be televised.

The last 2,000 tickets were sold Friday morning, ahead of the 1 p.m. extended deadline set by the league.

Normally, a team must have a sellout 48 hours before the game in order to televise it to the local market.

Last year, the Lions had four TV blackouts.

Kickoff for Sunday’s game is at 1 p.m.
