Chiefs Have Work To Do To Avoid Blackout Vs. Titans

What do the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs have in common? They are the only three teams in the NFL to be undefeated at home through 15 weeks of the 2010 NFL season. One of those teams, though, has some work to do in order to have Sunday's game televised.

Chiefs COO Mark Donovan appeared on 810 WHB Wednesday morning and noted that the league requires the Chiefs to give them an update on ticket sales each week and, based on where the Chiefs are sitting right now, they are on the list of games that could be blacked out this weekend.

Chiefs officials are optimistic enough tickets sell but, still, they're not there yet and the league has deemed it a question mark at this point.

First, let's get the obvious out of the way. If you wanna buy tickets here are your options: Chiefs website or Ticketmaster (or TiqIQ).

Second, we know a packed house is a significant football advantage for the Chiefs. We saw it against San Diego (three delay of games, one false start) and we saw it at Arrowhead East in St. Louis (five false starts). The Chiefs defense clearly responds to the crowd allowing a league-low 12.2 points at home. If we're measuring home field advantages, then the Chiefs may be the best considering they have a higher margin of victory at home than both the Patriots and Falcons.

Third, we all know what this game means. A Chiefs loss and a Chargers and Raiders victory means KC is in big trouble.

The Chiefs have indicated the last few years that these December games are difficult to sell out because of the economy combined with the cold weather. The difference this year is that the Chiefs are actually good.

So will they be able to do it?
