Detroit Lions Sell Out Home Opener, Blackout Lifted

Earlier this week, we noted that the Lions did not sell out Ford Field for their home opener against the Philadelphia Eagles by the NFL’s blackout deadline. The league granted the team a 24 hour extension and they were able to move the last 2,000 tickets.

So Detroit area residents will get to see Michael Vick lead the Eagles against the Lions… Who would have guessed that before the season?
