    Sunday’s game between the Chargers and Baltimore Ravens has been blacked out in Southern California, the Chargers media relations office announced Thursday.

    The home game kicks off at 1:05 p.m. at Qualcomm Stadium. However, per NFL ticket-sales policy, it will not be aired live on TV.

    According to the NFL’s policy, all games not completely sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff are required to be blacked out in the local market.

    This includes all signals within a 75-mile radius of the stadium. The League’s black out policy affects all telecasts, including cable and satellite.

    As of Thursday afternoon, more than 9,000 general tickets remained available for purchase.

    A highlight of Sunday's game includes the official induction ceremony of former Chargers punter Darren Bennett into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame during halftime.

    Though the telecast of the game is blacked out, a radio broadcast of the action can be heard on Rock 105.3 FM and XTRA Sports 1360 AM in San Diego and KATY 101.3 FM in Temecula.

    Sunday’s game isn’t the first time the Chargers have been blacked out this season.

    Back in September, the Chargers vs. Atlanta Falcons game was also not televised. In August, a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys also never made it to TV.
