Chargers avoid TV blackout

San Diego knows a big game when it sees it.

The Chargers did not have to sweat out a potential local television blackout this week. The team has sold out Sunday’s pivotal game against Cincinnati. The winner gets the inside track on the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the AFC playoffs.

San Diego did announce it has 5,500 seats remaining for its regular-season finale against Washington on Jan. 3.
