    With four teams on byes and only 14 games being played this weekend, five of them fall on the blackout watch list.

    In Ohio's Queen City, a 53-game streak of sellouts is in jeopardy. Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reported on Tuesday that the Bengals still have plenty of tickets to sell to avoid a blackout.

    In Michigan, the Lions are 4,500 seats short of a sellout against the Rams, per Tim Twentyman of the Detroit News.

    In Arizona, the Cardinals expect to sell out their home game against the Saints, the 47th straight sellout at University of Phoenix Stadium.

    In Oakland, a blackout of the visit from the Chargers is presumed; the nine-game streak of non-sellouts is the only thing the Raiders have done consistently lately.

    And in Buffalo, the Bills face the "probable end" of a 26-game sellout streak, according to Gene Warner of the Buffalo News.

    To summarize, the Raiders and Bills games likely will be blacked out, the Cardinals game won't be blacked out, and the Lions and Bengals games could be blacked out.

    I'm amazed that Lions-Rams is even close to selling out considering the quality of the product and the economy in Detroit...
