We just saw an avalanche of blackouts stories come across our various feeds at the same time, so let’s throw them all together, shall we?
Rod Woodson’s favorite game of the weekend, Baltimore and Oakland, will not be seen in the Bay Area. That makes seven blackouts in the Black Hole out of eight games this season. That’s the most blackouts for the Raiders since 1997.
It’s uncertain if the Packers-Cardinals game will mean anything, but fans in Arizona will get to watch. Some tickets are available, but they have sold enough to show the game locally.
The Chargers have received an extension to sell 750 tickets, so they sound likely to avoid a blackout tomorrow.
The Lions have sold out their game against the Bears, so folks in Detroit can watch Jay Cutler rope Bears fans back in this weekend.
Finally, we wanted to pass along this nugget from Broncos Vice President of Public Relations Jim Saccomano: Denver will complete their 40th straight season of sellouts Sunday against Kansas City. That’s pretty impressive.
