The Detroit Lions and the San Diego Chargers have each received 24-hour extensions of the 72-hour deadline for selling out all non-premium seats to their respective home openers.
In Detroit, 1,700 tickets need to be sold, down from 4,000 on Wednesday.
In a release, the Chargers attribute their extension to the fact that they played at Oakland on Monday night. The two concepts, of course, have no logical connection, especially for the first home game of the regular season.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars did not request more time to sell 17,000 unsold non-premium tickets to the home opener against the Cardinals. As a result, the game will not be televised locally.
The good news for Jacksonville residents is that the game will stream on NFL.com at no charge beginning at midnight Sunday and for 72 hours thereafter, with the exception of the period of time during the Monday Night Football game.
