    Whichever way this season turns Sunday night, San Diego Chargers fans can watch from home.

    The team announced Thursday enough tickets have been sold to avoid its second blackout in as many weeks, allowing a critical matchup against the Baltimore Ravens to be televised live in Southern Calfiornia.

    Despite being nationally broadcast on NBC, the game was still in danger of a local blackout, per NFL policy.

    A playoff berth could be on the line for the Chargers (6-7) when they host the Ravens (10-3), depending on what occurs that afternoon.

    Should the New York Jets defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, a Sunday night loss will eliminate the Chargers from a wild-card berth. Likewise, if the Denver Broncos beat the New England Patriots, a Chargers loss will end any chance to win the AFC West.

    The Bolts will wear their powder-blue jerseys for the game, which kicks off at 5:20 p.m. Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth will call the game from the booth, as Michelle Tafoya reports from the sidelines.

    Tickets can still be purchased via the Chargers website or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. The ticket office, located at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium, is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    The team reported about 2,000 unsold general tickets on Tuesday.
