SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers say enough tickets have been sold to lift the local television blackout of their game Sunday against AFC West rival Oakland.

The Chargers needed a 24-hour extension from the NFL, until 1:05 p.m. Pacific Friday, to sell the remaining tickets to lift the blackout. The usual deadline is 72 hours before kickoff.

This is the 43rd consecutive regular-season or postseason Chargers home game to be televised live in Southern California.

The last regular-season blackout was on Nov. 7, 2004, against the New Orleans Saints. The team record for consecutive games televised live is 44 set from 1979-84.
