Dolphins, Raiders avoid blackouts

The SportsXchange

The Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders announced they have avoided blackouts, and their home games on Sunday will be televised locally.

The San Diego Chargers' home game against Atlanta pitting a pair of 2-0 teams, will be blacked out in the San Diego area. More than 9,000 tickets were reportedly still available at the deadline.

The Dolphins and Raiders aren't necessarily sellouts, but they sold enough tickets to satisfy the non-black out threshhold.

"We expect a very full house" Sunday, a Raiders spokeman told the Contra Costa Times.

The Dolphins announced Friday that enough tickets were sold following an extension granted by the league that Miami's game against the Jets on Sunday will be shown locally. However, the team said seat do remain available.
