SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers say they have sold enough tickets to lift the local blackout for Sunday's season-finale against the rival Oakland Raiders.
The sellout snaps a string of three straight blackouts for the Chargers, who will miss the playoffs for the third straight season. Overall, the Chargers had four games blacked out this year.
The sellout is likely due to interest by Raiders fans in seeing their team's only Southern California appearance of the season.
San Diego is 6-9 and the Raiders are 4-11.
San Diego is expected to fire coach Norv Turner and likely general manager A.J. Smith.
