Jaguars granted extension to avoid blackout
Question of the Day
JACKSONVILLE, FLA. (AP) - Despite winning four of their last five games and taking over first place in the AFC South, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been granted a 24-hour extension to the NFL’s blackout deadline.
The Jaguars have about 1,700 tickets to sell for Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders to get the game televised locally and in secondary markets.
The small-market franchise has sold about 1,000 tickets every day this week, making it likely the Jaguars will get close enough to buy the remaining tickets and lift the blackout.
Jacksonville blacked out nine of 10 home games last season, creating talk that it might not be a viable NFL market. But the team stepped up ticket-selling efforts and has avoided blackouts all season.
