    Blackout lifted on Chargers-Chiefs game

    Enough tickets have been sold to lift the local television blackout and allow Southern California to see the Chargers and Chiefs play on Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium.

    The Bolts got a second 24-hour extension and had until 1:05 p.m. on Saturday to sell the remaining 1,350 tickets. Under the NFL rule, a game must be sold out 72 hours in advance before it may be aired in a team's local TV market.

    Dick Enberg and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts will call the play-by-play action for the game.

    This weekend’s game is the 45th consecutive regular season or postseason Chargers home game to be televised live in Southern California, the longest streak in team history.  The last regular-season home game blacked out in the local market was on Nov. 7, 2004 versus the New Orleans Saints, according to a statement released by the team.   

    The Chargers’ next home game is Sunday, Dec. 20 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.
