The Chargers didn’t sell enough tickets for Sunday’s game with the Bengals to avoid a local television blackout, and it wasn’t particularly close.
The Chargers announced that nearly 11,000 tickets remained for the game, far beyond what they needed to move.
This marks the eighth blackout in their last 16 afternoon games, not counting prime time appearances.
And while the team didn’t release numbers, their remaining home games are against the Panthers and Raiders, meaning local fans might have seen the last of them on television, other than road games against the Steelers and Jets.
Of course, that might be a good thing.
