Chargers Sellout Breaks Chiefs Road Blackout Streak

The Kansas City Chiefs second game against the San Diego Chargers has officially been deemed a sellout according to a release from the Chargers.

The Chiefs last two road games have been blacked out in their respective markets.  Jacksonville and Oakland did not televise the game locally.

The Chargers had previously received two extensions to sellout this game.  As of yesterday, they were over 1,300 tickets away and as many as 7,000 last week.

The Chargers haven't had a blackout since November 7th, 2004 against the New Orleans Saints.

Some people say the reason San Diego has a tough time filling Qualcomm is that the city itself has a lot more to do. The weather is nice and the water is near so people have other, better options than sitting around watching a NFL team on a five game winning streak (I would disagree, personally).

Plus, it hurts that Qualcomm Stadium has been called the armpit of the NFL.

The Chiefs are still on track to sell out the next home game against the Denver Broncos.  After that, though, Arrowhead's nearly 20 year long sellout streak could be in jeopardy.  A win against the Chargers in Qualcomm tomorrow could go a long way to helping that.
