The Lions play the Rams Sunday at Ford Field at 1 p.m.

Allen Park -- The Lions want to toast the 1991 team.

So they are making it a whole lot cheaper for fans to join in on the celebration.

The team announced Monday that for Sunday's 1 p.m. game against the Los Angeles Rams at Ford Field, beer and hot dogs will be sold at retro prices -- $3.50 for the suds, and $2.50 for the franks.

The Breadstick Bar and Bistro will sell the reduced-priced concessions, starting at noon. The bar is on the second floor of the concourse, near Gate A.

Kelly Kozole, senior vice president of business development, called the retro pricing, "a fun promotion that not only has a nostalgia touchpoint, but also is a value addition to the game-day experience."

The $3.50 beers will include 16-ounce Budweiser and Bud Light aluminum bottles, only. The regular price for those beers is $8.50. The regular price for the hot dogs is $6.25.

The Lions are celebrating the 1991 team that set a franchise-record for regular-season wins, with 12, including an 8-0 record at the Pontiac Silverdome.

That team made the NFC championship game, its best showing in the Super Bowl era.

There are two other promotions for Sunday: the first 20,000 fans inside the stadium by noon will receive a Barry Sanders bobblehead, and there's a ticket offer for the game that includes a Lions Zubaz giveaway. That's available at detroitlions.com/tickets, while supplies last.
