The NFL is back and FOX 2 is your home of the Lions every weekend and the they return to the gridiron in our nation’s capital on FOX 2.
The Lions (1-0) are in Washington for the second preseason game of the year but the action starts at 7:00 p.m. on FOX 2.
Special pregame coverage starts at 7:00 live from FedEx Field with the FOX 2 Lions Pregame. At 7:30, the two teams go head-to-head and you can only watch it LIVE on FOX 2.
The Lions will get another look at the breakout star of their first preseason game, running back Ameer Abdullah, a second-round draft pick out of Nebraska. He broke free for a 45-yard run and finished with 67 yards on seven carries against the Jets, while Joique Bell, the team's top returning running back, sat out injured.
Haloti Ngata, brought in to replace Ndamukong Suh on the defensive line, missed the opener, too, recovering from a hamstring strain. Neither Bell nor Ngata is expected to play against Washington.
Once the game ends, don't go anywhere because our exclusive coverage continues with the post-game show on FOX 2.
FOX 2 is your home for the Lions, all season long.
