11,000 tix remain in Minn.

About 11,000 tickets remain for Sunday's Eagles-Vikings playoff game in Minnesota, according to the Star-Tribune. Yesterday's report had 14,000 tickets available, and earlier in the week, the number was 20,000. As we stated yesterday, if the game isn't sold out, it would be blacked out in Minnesota, which hasn't happened there since the Vikings' regular-season finale in 1997. An NFL playoff game has not been blacked out since the Dolphins-Ravens 2002 matchup in Miami. The normal blackout deadline is 72 hours before kickoff, but teams are allowed to ask the NFL for extensions. According to the Star-Tribune, the Vikings have already requested an extension, which would give them until about 4:30 p.m. EST Friday to sell the game out. Just did a quick ticket search online. As of 2:30, there are $30 tickets available. These are the least expensive seats offered. If you're looking to go big, there are $160 tickets available also at the 30-yard line, 20 rows up. It will definitely be interesting to see how many Eagles fans make the trip.
