Blackout a possibility

ALLEN PARK — The match-up of two NFL teams with identical 1-8 records has not sent fans in droves to the Lions’ ticket office. A television blackout appears likely for Sunday’s Lions game against the Cleveland Browns (1-8). As of early Wednesday afternoon, more than 7,000 tickets remain for the game at Ford Field.

The game must be sold out by 1 p.m. on Thursday for the game to be broadcast on local television. If it is blacked out, it will be the third time this season. The win over the Washington Redskins and the loss to St. Louis were both blacked out.
