One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


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.
