Lions Change Start Time For Preseason Finale

The final game of the preseason, a matchup with the Bills at Ford Field on Sept. 2, will now begin at 6:30 p.m. ET. Originally the game was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., but it will now start a half-hour early.

Although the game will begin at 6:30 p.m., it won't be shown on TV locally until later that night, as a blackout is almost guaranteed. This Saturday's game will in all likelihood be blacked out as well, so to expect a game during the week where the starters will play only a series at most to not be blacked out would just be silly.
