How to Watch the Detroit Lions’ Preseason Game vs. Raiders

For Detroit Lions fans across the state of Michigan and in Toledo, the easiest way to watch tonight’s game between the Lions and Oakland Raiders will be on local television.

In addition to the preseaon flagship home of Detroit Lions football, WXYZ-TV channel 7 in Detroit, six other stations will carry the game outside of the Detroit area: WXMI-TV Fox 17 (Grand Rapids), WSYM-TV Fox 47 (Lansing), WNEM-TV CBS 5 (Flint, Saginaw, Bay City), WFQX-TV Fox 32 (Cadillac, Traverse City), WJMN-TV CBS 3 (Marquette) and WUPW-TV Fox 36 (Toledo).

Unlike last week, NFL Network won’t be bringing this week’s Lions preseason game to a national audience. However, NFL Network is scheduled to show the replay of the game at 9 AM ET on Sunday – a good tune up for fans for the Lions’ regular season game against the Falcons that will be played in London.

If you’re out of the Detroit market, you still have an option to watch live. NFL Preseason Live is a subscription-based streaming service providing all 65 games online. Watch the game live or check out the archive later. In fact, this is a good option for a second viewing because the condensed option lets you watch the game in about 30 minutes. Find more details at
