Lions-Redskins Game Officially Blacked Out

Since there are still around 5,000 tickets available for Sunday's game between the Lions and Redskins, the NFL denied a request that would have given the Lions 24 more hours to reach a sellout.  That decision essentially ended the Lions' sellout streak, meaning the game will be blacked out locally.  All 50 of the Lions' regular season games played at Ford Field in the past were sold out, which is surprising considering how mediocre the team has been during the stadium's existence.

What a blackout means is that if you live within 75 miles of Ford Field, you will not be able to watch Sunday's game on television.  Instead, you will have to listen to it on the radio, track it online, or hope that someone is going to stream it on the Internet.  There usually is at least one online stream out there, so I will be on the lookout on Sunday.  The quality of the streams isn't usually very good, but they're better than nothing.

If I am able to find a stream, I will post a link to it on the game thread and will also attempt to give live updates.  If I can't, then I will probably just listen to the game on the radio and will infrequently keep you aware of what is happening.
