Lions game against Rams blacked out on local TV
DETROIT — The Detroit Lions game against the St. Louis Rams will be blacked out on TV in and around the Motor City.
Lions spokesman Bill Keenist said Thursday the team did not sell all the 10,000-plus tickets that were still available the previous day.
The lackluster game featuring the Lions (1-5) and the winless Rams (0-7) will be blacked out in the Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw-Flint and Toledo, Ohio, markets. Fox owns the broadcast rights to the game.
Detroit sold out two of its first four games, getting a lot of help the last time it was home from Pittsburgh Steelers fans who filled Ford Field.
Fox is owned by News Corp.
