I figured there would be more tickets available this week than there were last Wednesday for the Vikings game, but I never would have imagined that over twice as many would be available. Last week there were 4,000 tickets that needed to be sold, and the Lions received an extension and reached a sellout on Friday. Well, don't expect that to happen this week.
The Detroit Lions have more than 10,000 tickets remaining for Sunday's game against Washington, team spokesman Bill Keenist said today.
The Lions aren't even close enough to a sellout receive a 24-hour extension, so it appears that the first blackout of the season for Detroit will become official tomorrow afternoon.
