Sellout Expected For Lions' Home Opener

Blackouts have been extremely common and extremely annoying in the last two seasons, but it appears that Sunday's home opener between the Lions and Eagles will be a sellout, meaning the game will be shown locally on TV.

As of noon Wednesday, the team had just 3,000 tickets left unsold for Sunday's game against the Eagles at Ford Field, making it almost certain the game will be sold out by Thursday's 1 p.m. blackout deadline. 

I imagine that blackouts will still be common this season, but at least it looks as though that won't be an issue for Sunday's game. While a sellout has not been reached yet, the Lions almost always have one when they get this close.

If the Lions don't sell the final 3,000 tickets by tomorrow's deadline, they will likely get a 24-hour extension to make sure a sellout happens.
