Free NFL Football in Detroit

Michigan Expats - News - See All News

First, congratulations to the Lions for the win yesterday against the Packers, 7-3.  It was a tough old school battle, but a big win for the Lions who snapped a 19-game NFC North divisional losing streak. Hopefully the Lions can end their road game losing streak either next week in Florida these next two weeks (Tampa Bay, Miami) before they wrap up the reason at home against Minnesota. 

The Vikings get a surprise visit to Detroit today as they take on the Giants at Ford Field after the roof of the Metrodome collapsed early yesterday under the weight of the heavy snowfall in Minneapolis. 

Tickets to the game are free! You can pick them up at the Ford Field box office beginning at 9:00AM. A ticket stub from yesterday's win over the Packers will also get you in the game. All tickets are general admission and gates open at 5:30PM for the 7:20PM kickoff.

Get tickets, go, wear your Lions, Pistons, Tigers, Red Wings, UofM/MSU, or Michigan Awesome gear with pride, cheer and enjoy the game, and most importantly be welcoming and gracious hosts representing our great state.

It's an incredible public relations opportunity. If Detroit displays that it can fill Ford Field on one day's notice to watch two out of market teams, it helps the city continue to attract other big sporting events (Final Four, All-Star games, Super Bowl, etc.).

Absolutely incredible footage.

  1. well the lions won 2 in a row! seeing as they're in a crappy conference, if they win a few more, they might not finish last. i had hopes of a tie for first place, but then chicago won last night :)
