A 24-point win in prime time has yet to translate into a significant spike in ticket sales in San Diego.

The Chargers have announced that 5,500 non-premium tickets remain for Sunday’s home game against the Bills.  If the tickets aren’t purchased by 4:15 p.m. ET Thursday, the game will be blacked out.

Of course, it’s possible that the Chargers will secure an extension of the deadline for selling the tickets.

The 5-7 Chargers and the 5-7 Bills are both clinging to hope for a possible playoff berth.  The loser of the game surely is done; the winner may be done, anyway.

  1. If they really wanted to sell these tickets they would drop their prices. The Vikings have dropped their ticket prices to $25 each in order to just get people in the seats. I realize we’re talking about the Vikings, but those prices were in effect even at the beginning of the season. The Chargers’ organization would rather let the seats go empty than at least get some money for them.

    The lowest price I found was $54 on Chargers.com. Throw in the “surcharges” and you’re talking $65. No way am I going to shell out that for a Chargers/Bills game. Not going to happen.

  2. I live in LA. I want this game blacked out. I want to see the Packers pound the Raiders and go to 13-0. I do not want to see the rotten Chargers or the rotten Bills.

  3. Yeah, I as a fan really want to see lame duck SD, who paired with Dallas has to be the biggest disappointment of a franchise in the past 16 years, play 5-7 Buffalo, whose Ryan Fitzpatrick SB train turned into a pumpkin right after a big contract extension, WOW I didn’t see that coming *smirk*.

    Just move SD to LA and get it over with.

  4. As goawayeverybody stated even the cheapest tickets aren’t cheap. I also believe the cheapest tickets are in the “family” section which means no alcohol and it’s not worth going to a Chargers game if you can’t drown your sorrows in overpriced beer.

  5. they were having trouble selling out home games when they were above .500, they’re 5-7 and playing the ‘Boy I Love Losing Superbowls’ another cursed team

    i would have been shocked had the game sold out from anything short of the team, or a local business buying up the tickets

  6. So funny to read these tickets remaining articles. If and when LA ever does get a team back there, won’t it be fun to see them in this rotation..
    ….6,600 seats remaining in LA to be sold before Thurs to avoid first blackout of inaugural season……! What a laugh

  7. What happened to all the Charger fans crowing about “This team always starts slow but finishes strong?”
    Can I get an actual date on when the “strong finish” begins?
