DETROIT -- Minutes after the Lions made free tickets available for Monday night's rescheduled game between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, fans were being turned away from the box office at Ford Field.
The team originally planned on distributing tickets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, but fans scooped up all 500 tickets -- with a two-ticket limit per person -- within 10 minutes.

Scalpers quickly moved to sell the tickets on the streets outside the stadium, in one case asking $125 for a single ticket.
"This ain't a free game, man," one scalper said.
Meanwhile, the Bills tweeted out a photo of Ralph Wilson Stadium, where the process of removing the snow from last week's storms is still ongoing.
