Lions' success paying off at the box office

The Detroit Lions are gaining some ground with their long-suffering fans as the team announced Wednesday that Sunday’s game with the New York Jets at Ford Field has been sold out.

This comes on the heels of the Lions’ victory last Sunday over the Washington Redskins, a game that was blacked out to the local television audience.

According to a report by Tom “Killer” Kowalski of MLive.com, team president Tom Lewand said ticket sales have picked up for all future games.

“We have to keep up our end of the bargain,” Lewand said.
