Lions sell out Thanksgiving game vs. Patriots
ALLEN PARK -- The Lions announced today (Thursday) that they have sold out the Thanksgiving Day game against the New England Patriots on Nov. 25
The sell-out lifts the local TV blackout. The game will air on CBS.
Could this have something to do with the half-time entertainment? It was announced earlier this week that Kid Rock will perform in the United Way half-time show at Ford Field.
The Lions have lost six straight on Thanksgiving and eight of the last nine. Not exactly a good tradition.
The 2-7 Lions have now sold out four of their first five home games.
