Raiders sell out game vs. Steelers
By Paul Gutierrez
ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Make it four-for-four for the Oakland Raiders this season, and 19 for their last 20, as the team announced Thursday that Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers has sold out, meaning a local television blackout will be lifted.
Since assuming ticket sales in 2006, the Raiders have now sold out 39 of 60 home games.
The updated overall number since the team returned from 13 seasons in Los Angeles in 1995? Try 68 televised home games and 80 blackouts.
