COME CHAT ABOUT THE GAME: Lions vs. Patriots open thread

The 2013 NFL preseason continues on Thursday night with the Detroit Lions set to take on the New England Patriots. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET, and there are a few (legal) ways you can watch this week's game:

Live on TV

Since this game is a sellout, it will be aired live locally on WXYZ (Channel 7 in Detroit). It will also be aired live throughout the state of Michigan and even in Ohio. Here's the Lions' full list of affiliates for the preseason:

Metro Detroit - WXYZ (ABC 7)
Cadillac/Traverse City - WFQX (FOX 33)
Grand Rapids - WXMI (FOX 17)
Lansing - WSYM (FOX 47)
Marquette/Escanaba - WJMN (CBS 3)
Saginaw/Flint/Bay City - WNEM (CBS 5)
Toledo/Ohio - WUPW (FOX 36)

If you live in the New England area, you should be able to catch the game on one of the Patriots' preseason affiliates.

Online on NFL Preseason Live

If you are an out-of-market fan, your best bet to catch the game live is by subscribing to NFL Preseason Live. It's only $14.99, and you get access to every single NFL preseason game.

Replay on NFL Network

If you are out of market or simply can't catch the game on Thursday night, NFL Network is scheduled to show a replay of Lions/Patriots at 12 a.m. ET and 4 p.m. ET on Friday. The game will also be shown on Saturday at 1 p.m. ET.

There are, of course, other ways to watch preseason games, but links to illegal streams are prohibited on Pride Of Detroit. (That goes for the comments as well. Don't post links to illegal streams.)
