How To Watch Detroit Lions Vs. Cleveland Browns

For the first time since the Detroit Lions were knocked out of the playoffs earlier this year, it's game day. The Lions will open their 2012 preseason schedule on Friday night against the Cleveland Browns at Ford Field. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET, and a packed house is expected with the Lions selling out this game.

Because the game is a sellout, it will be aired live in local markets. This is a rarity for a preseason home game, but it means fans in southeast Michigan will get to watch the Lions' preseason opener live and not on tape delay.

The Lions' game against the Browns will be broadcast by WXYZ (Channel 7 in Detroit), which is the team's preseason TV partner. The game will also be shown throughout Michigan and Ohio on the following affiliates: WFQX (FOX 33; Cadillac/Traverse City), WXMI (FOX 17; Grand Rapids), WSYM (FOX 47; Lansing), WJMN (CBS 3; Marquette/Escanaba), WNEM (CBS 5; Saginaw/Flint/Bay City) and WTOL/WUPW (FOX 36; Toledo/Ohio). In addition, the Browns' broadcast can be found on WOIO (CBS 19) in Cleveland.

If you aren't in Michigan or Ohio, you can view the game on NFL Preseason Live. It costs $19.99 to subscribe, but you can get live access to every preseason game. If you don't want to subscribe and don't mind waiting a day to watch the game, NFL Network will show a replay of it at 2 a.m. ET on Sunday.

Obviously there are other ways to watch the game, but as mentioned earlier this week, links to illegal streams are prohibited on Pride Of Detroit going forward.
