Lions president Tom Lewand announced Wednesday that the team has sold out Sunday's home opener against the Chiefs and will be televised in the team's local market, which extends from Michigan into Toledo, Ohio.

"We hope the days when announcing that we've sold the game out or the blackout has been lifted is no longer a newsworthy event," Lewand said. "Winning a game on the road should not be a tremendously newsworthy event. We have to have a level of expectation that we need to not only win games, but to perform well doing so."

A limited number of tickets (100-200) are still available for purchase, having been returned from the Chiefs.

"Clearly winning the game on Sunday always helps and it always has," Lewand added. "That's a given. The amount of enthusiasm that our fans have shown at the box office has been pretty remarkable all season long."
