Detroit Lions Kickoff the Season on FOX with Chris Myers and Tim Ryan

The week one game between the Lions and Bucs is a big match up to fans in Detroit and Tampa but the people at FOX Sports seem to have a lesser opinion.

Fox will send their number five broadcast team of Chris Myers and Tim Ryan to cover the game. Fans in Michigan, Northwest Ohio and the Florida Gulf Coast (outside the Tampa blackout area) will be get the game on broadcast television, fans elsewhere will need the NFL Sunday Ticket package or head to their favorite local establishment to see the game.

To supplement your enjoyment of the game (and ours!), SideLion Report will once again host a live blog during the game. Whether you can’t watch it and want to stay up to the second or just want to talk about the game while it is going on, we’ll be here and hope you join us. Use the box below to set up an email reminder:

The Detroit market will also receive Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore on CBS with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms on the call in the early time slot and Minnesota vs. San Diego on FOX following the Lions game. Ron Pitts and Jim Mora Jr. will call the action there.
