Detroit Lions Avoid Blackout For Home Opener 9-17-2010

ALLEN PARK, Mich.The Detroit Lions have avoided a local television blackout of their home opener against Philadelphia.
The Lions announced Friday they had sold enough tickets to ensure Sunday's game will air live in the Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw-Flint and Toledo, Ohio, markets.
The NFL had given the team a 24-hour extension, which would have lasted until 1 p.m. EDT Friday.
Lions President Tom Lewand said the Eagles returned a few hundred tickets from their allotment.
Those tickets are available to the public, but that won't affect the broadcast.
