It was previously reported that the NFL would give out free tickets to the Vikings-Giants game on Monday night at Ford Field on a first-come, first-serve basis. Now, ESPN's Adam Schefter says that the NFL will also add some value to Packers-Lions tickets from today.
Fans with tickets to today's Packers-Lions game can use their ticket from game and be admitted free tomorrow night w/ no reserved seating.
There's no mention of whether the fans with tickets to today's game need to have used them to get free admission, but, well, if you bought a Lions-Packers ticket, didn't go, and then learned that the ticket was good for a Vikings-Giants game, I would suggest you invest in another ticket — like, one with a scratch-off — ASAP.
And if you were a Lions fan who bought a ticket to see your team this week, that ticket has probably already gotten you admitted to a divisional rivalry game featuring one of the NFL's best quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers, and it will now give you a chance to see what might be Brett Favre's last game at Ford Field, a second chance to see Adrian Peterson this season, and a really good chance to see Eli Manning throw a stupefying interception.
Finally, living in Detroit is paying off!
