SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego Chargers say Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals will be blacked out on local TV.

The team, which has the NFL’s eighth-highest prices, says more than 6,500 general-admission tickets remained unsold at Thursday’s deadline.

It’s San Diego’s second blackout in as many home games. The Chargers’ string of 48 straight sellouts dating to 2004, including playoff games, was snapped two weeks ago when the Chargers fell more than 7,000 tickets short of a sellout against Jacksonville.

NFL rules require a blackout if a game isn’t sold out 72 hours in advance.

The Chargers, Southern California’s only NFL team, say there could be several games blacked out this year.

    Boo to the Chargers!! I thought I’d get the game on Direct TV on the NFL station, but you have to pay a lot of money to see all the games. They are 1 and 2 and may loose this one too. Being in LA area without a team or close team to watch sucks. Oh well, Money talks.

    This game shouldnt be blacked out in LA, which is outside of the 75 mile radius.

    Yet it is still is, even for the people that pay hundreds for the Sunday Ticket.
