ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns will not be televised in the Oakland area because not enough tickets were sold. It will be shown in Northern Nevada.
The team announced the blackout Thursday, ending a streak of 13 straight televised games.
The Raiders need to sell 85 percent of available tickets 72 hours before the game for it to be broadcast locally. The last game that was not televised locally was the home finale against Indianapolis in 2010.
