San Diego has a shot at the playoffs if the Chargers beat the Chiefs on Sunday, but there’s a chance that game won’t be shown on local television.
The Chargers announced on Tuesday that they need to sell 2,500 tickets to lift the local TV blackout.
That’s close enough that it seems highly likely that the remaining tickets will be sold, and the team also has the option of buying back the remaining unsold tickets at 34 percent of face value to lift the blackout. So the game will probably be on TV in Southern California.
But that’s not a sure thing, even for a game that could end with the Chargers in the playoffs.
