The San Diego Chargers have been given an extension to lift the blackout for this weekend’s game against the Oakland Raiders. There are more than 1300 tickets left for the game and the game is expected to be shown on the local broadcast.

I remember when the Oakland Raiders game was an easy sell out. Since the Raiders are barely competitive and it is toward the end of the season, even the Raiders fans don’t want to head out to see the game.

The Chargers fans are barely hanging on to dear life for the playoffs and need to win the game against the Raiders to have a chance.
