    I guess, it wasn't a coincidence that the one Chargers home game that didn't sellout was against the Bengals.

    Definitely won't be blacked out.

    Just the media trying to make a story. Hell, they're even screaming about "15,000" unsold seats in Green Bay.
    Both games will sell out…it's less than 48 hours since the details (opponents, times, etc.) were known.
    I'm used to the media trying to make something out of nothing, but this is absurd even by the "norm"
    we're grown accustomed to.

    [EDIT: 1/3/14 Yes, confirmed, zero playoff blackouts http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...e-sell-out-keeping-all-wild-card-games-on-tv/]

    They haven't asked for an extension, yet. Indy was facing the same problem & they locked the division just like Cincy did.
    But Indy has around 6,000 or so tickets left & asked for an extension to sell because their deadline is (was) tomorrow since they're playing Saturday.

    Yes. Just pointing out how a team that is undefeated at home & won their division is facing a possible blackout.

    As someone who lives in Seahawk territory, I'm surprised it wasn't faster. I wish our fan base showed like this.

    I live in cincy. One of the major companies here will buy them up. Kroger, or 5/3 bank. Someone will if the are unsold at the deadline.
