Last week, the Chargers failed to sell all non-premium tickets to their home game against the Bills. This week, the Chargers have 2,000 tickets to sell in order to avoid a second straight blackout.
The Chargers host the Ravens on Sunday Night Football.
The desire to have a marquee game seen locally should, in theory, be enough to persuade ownership to buy the unsold tickets at 34 cents on the dollar. But if ownership plans to fire coach Norv Turner, and possibly G.M. A.J. Smith, limping into the offseason with a pair of local blackouts could help ensure that the locals will be on board with the changes that could be made.
