    Chargers fans will be able to watch Sunday's game on TV after the team sold enough tickets to avoid an NFL blackout in local markets.

    Chargers fans hoping to watch Sunday’s game on TV can breathe a sigh of relief. The game won’t be blacked out.

    It will be shown live on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. (on CBS) as the Bolts host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    As of Tuesday, more than 5,000 tickets were still available. But an alliance between Union Bank, Donovan’s Steak & Chop House, KFMB, the Sycuan Band of Kumeyaay Indians and the Brigantine Family of Restaurants guaranteed the purchase of enough tickets to lift the NFL’s local blackout on games that aren’t sold out.

    Tickets purchased by the groups will be given to local youth organizations and the Armed Services YMCA.

    Some tickets still remain for those who want to see the game in person. They can be purchased on the Chargers website or at Qualcomm Stadium.

    As of Thursday afternoon, tickets were going for as cheap as $60 on the Chargers site. You can get a pair for just $28.20 on secondary sales site StubHub.

    Of course, if you do go, don’t expect a close game. The Chargers are favored by 13 points over the winless Jags.
