More than 10,000 tickets remain
ALLEN PARK As of late this afternoon more than 10,000 tickets were available for Sundays game at Ford Field against the Washington Redskins. The game must be sold out by noon Thursday so the game wont be blacked out on local television on Sunday.
Last week the Lions were within 1,700 tickets of a sellout on Thursday so they were granted a 24-hour extension to sell the remaining tickets. With an 0-2 record, a 19-game losing streak and the economy in the dumps, its a tough sell. PAULA PASCHE
