Lions home opener likely to be televised
ALLEN PARK -- With 2,000 tickets remaining for Sunday’s home opener at Ford Field, the Lions have received a 24-hour extension to 1 p.m. on Friday to sell out and lift the blackout.
That means it’s likely the game will be televised. The NFL has never granted an extension to a team that has not sold out the game.
The Lions, coming off a heartbreaking loss at Chicago, will play the Philadelphia Eagles at 1 p.m.
