The San Diego Chargers game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens will not be televised locally, team officials announced Thursday.
National Football League policy dictates the game must have been sold out 72 hours before its 1:05 p.m. kickoff to avoid being blacked out in local markets, which include all signals within a 75-mile radius of the stadium and areas whose television signals reach within that 75-mile zone.
The policy affects all telecasts, including cable and satellite. More than 9,000 tickets remained unsold for the 1:05 p.m. game at Qualcomm Stadium as the Chargers have slumped to a 4-6 record with losses in five of their last six games.
