    In an effort to avoid a television blackout for this Sunday’s game, the San Diego Chargers are offering fans a deal if they buy tickets.

    Those who purchase tickets to this Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons will also have the opportunity to buy tickets to the highly-anticipated Chargers-Broncos game, the team announced on its website.

    The Broncos matchup will be the team’s next home game and will air on Monday Night Football. It will be the first time famed quarterback Peyton Manning will visit Qualcomm Stadium as a Bronco.

    Tickets for the game are selling fast, and the team says this may be fans' only chance to buy good seats.

    The Chargers now have until Thursday at 1:05 p.m. to sell 11,000 tickets, or else the game won’t be aired on local television.

    About 2,000 Club Seats are also available.

    Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m. Sunday.

    The NFL had granted the San Diego Chargers an extended deadline last week for their game against the Tennessee Titans. The day before the game, the team announced they had sold enough tickets for the blackout to be lifted.
