The Detroit Lions kicked off their 2015 preseason schedule last week with a 23-3 win over the New York Jets. This week, they are headed on the road to face the Washington Redskins. As usual, there are a few different ways to watch the Lions in preseason action:
Live on TV
This game will be aired live locally on WJBK (FOX 2 in Detroit). It will also be aired live throughout Michigan and even in Ohio. Here's the Lions' list of TV affiliates for the preseason (via 506 Sports):
WJBK (FOX/2 - Detroit)
WNEM (CBS/5 - Saginaw)
WSYM (FOX/47 - Lansing)
WXMI (FOX/17 - Grand Rapids)
WUPW (FOX/36 - Toledo OH)
WJMN (CBS/3 - Escanaba MI)
WFQX (FOX/32 - Cadillac/Traverse City)
You can see the Redskins' TV affiliates here.
Online on NFL Game Pass
If you are an out-of-market fan, your best bet to catch the game live is by subscribing to NFL Game Pass. Unfortunately, there is no separate package just for preseason games this year, so you're required to purchase the entire full-season package. (On the bright side, there is a seven-day free trial.)
Replay on NFL Network or Fox Sports Detroit
If you simply can't catch the game on Thursday night, NFL Network and Fox Sports Detroit are scheduled to show multiple replays of it:
