ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders' home game against the Denver Broncos will be blacked out locally because the team did not sell out the game in time.
Games need to be sold out 72 hours before kickoff to avoid a blackout in a 75-mile radius. The Raiders got a one-day extension to sell out the opener against San Diego but were unable to avoid the blackout against the Broncos.
The Raiders have had two games blacked out each season since taking over ticket sales from Alameda County before the 2006 season. This marks the first division game blacked out during that time.
