SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers have sold enough tickets to lift the local television blackout of their home opener on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Chargers were in danger of their first regular-season blackout since 2004. Both of their exhibition openers were blacked out, and the team has warned fans that there could be regular-season blackouts.
The team said 4,000 tickets remain for their game against Miami a week from Sunday.
The team received a 24-hour extension from the NFL because it still had 1,100 tickets unsold on Thursday.
