Cardinals avoid first blackout since 2005

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Cardinals sold enough tickets to their home game against the Texans on Sunday to avoid the first local television blackout since University of Phoenix Stadium opened for the 2006 season.

The team does not play another home game until Nov. 1 against Carolina.

The Rams also avoided a blackout for their Week 5 game, against Minnesota. The Seahawks and 49ers were not in danger of blackouts.
