Lewand said he couldn't recall the last time the Lions announced a sellout on a Wednesday before a non-Thanksgiving Day game.

The Lions regularly sell out games despite consistently struggling to win games, but usually not until Thursday or Friday if the NFL grants them an extension.

Detroit will play host to the Jets on Sunday, and the game will be shown on TV in the Motor City area, unlike Sunday's victory over the Washington Redskins.

The Lions have sold out three of their four games this season and are shooting for a third consecutive win at Ford Field.
