Eagles-Raiders to be blacked out

OAKLAND - The Eagles-Raiders game in Oakland against the Eagles on Sunday will be blacked out locally because the Raiders did not sell out in time.

Games need to be sold out 72 hours before kickoff to avoid a blackout in a 75-mile radius. This is the second time in three home games that Oakland has been unable to avoid a blackout.

The Raiders have had two games blacked out each season since taking over ticket sales from Alameda County before the 2006 season.

In their first 11 seasons back from Los Angeles, the Raiders sold out only 25 of 88 regular-season games in time to avoid a blackout.
