Cards sell out for Sunday night

The Arizona Cardinals have announced that Sunday night’s game against the Colts has been sold out, and thus will be televised locally.

It’s the 36th straight sellout at University of Phoenix Stadium, dating back to the opening of the venue in 2006.

The Cardinals needed a 24-hour extension to sell out their home opener against the 49ers.

So far, two games will be blacked out this weekend — Broncos-Raiders and Redskins-Lions.

Some feared the Rams might face a blackout, but it appears that the home opener against the Packers will be sold out.

So, by our count, that’s three non-sellouts in 48 games — for a blackout rate of 6.25 percent.

    Lions will be sold out until they win a playoff game. Sad but true. That’s why everyone in Michigan has at least 2 backup teams, or just roots for the NFC in general.

    most folks up here root for MSU or the U of M.
    and usually not both.

    Raiders fans are a joke. I realize that they suck, but how can a division game in week 3 not sell out?! Pathetic.

    Raiders fans are a joke seriously they have sucked for ever. The fact that it takes a couple of days before the game for superbowl contenders to sell out a home game is a direct diss from the fans of arizona. As a Bear fan we have sucked for years and its still a 3 to 6 year waiting list to get season tickets. if they actually come available.

    I have a question. How do we know a team really sells out? Does the league just take the team’s word for it? What proof needs to be presented to the NFL?

    Dude, have you seen them play? I love the RAIDERS but it very painful to sit there live watching the RAIDERS offense go three and out, three and out. The defense has come a long way but JR sucks and he is dragging the offense down with him.
