The San Diego Chargers weren't blacked out in either their first two home games.
This week, the organization faces its biggest challenge.
About 7,200 general tickets must be sold by 1:15 p.m. Thursday, a tall order if the Sunday game between the Chargers and Miami Dolphins is to be televised live on local television.
A two-day surge in ticket sales represents fans' best hope to see the game from home. If enough tickets are sold prior to the deadline, the NFL could grant a 24-hour extension to sell the remaining tickets.
Again, a tall order.
The game will be a homecoming of sorts for Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, a Helix High graduate playing in San Diego for the first time in his NFL career.
The Chargers (2-1) and Dolphins (0-3) kick off at 1:15 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased online through the team website or via phone at 1-800-745-3000. The Chargers' ticket office, located at Gate C at Qualcomm Stadium, is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
