Despite a stunning turnaround, during which the Chargers have improved from 2-3 to 7-3 and have secured first place in the AFC West, the team is still struggling to sell tickets to home games.
On Sunday, the Chiefs comes to town, and 3,500 seats remain unsold.
The Chargers have announced that a 24-hour extension has been obtained for the purposes of selling the rest of the seats.
Typically, the granting of an extension is a precursor to securing a sellout, typically with the help of the local CBS affiliate that will be televising the game, the team, and/or team sponsors.
The Chargers warned before the season started that blackouts should be expected. To date, however, every regular-season game has been sold out, and thus televised locally.
