It's time for football!
Preseason opener: Detroit Lions (0-0) vs. Atlanta Falcons (0-0)
When: 6 p.m.
Where: Ford Field.
TV: Fox 2 (other TV affiliates across Michigan); NFL Network.
Radio: WXYT-FM (97.1; other radio affiliates).
Game notes: It's the first of three dress rehearsals for the Lions in preparation for the 2022 season. Expect to see the starters for about a quarter, but there will be plenty to keep an eye on, especially at linebacker, in the secondary and at running back.
FROM FRIDAY NIGHT: Lions OL as good as advertised in first half, running QBs may be an issue
