SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers say Sunday's home game against Tennessee will be blacked out in Southern California because more than 8,000 general-admission tickets remained unsold at Thursday's deadline.
It'll be the Chargers' third blackout in four home games this season.
The region's only NFL team, San Diego (2-5) has lost its last three games while committing numerous blunders. Tennessee (5-2) has won three straight.
Lions spokesman Bill Keenist confirmed Thursday the team didn't reach a sellout for Sunday's game by the NFL's deadline. Keenist says 8,500 tickets remain available.
The game will be blacked out in the Detroit, Lansing, Saginaw-Flint and Toledo, Ohio, markets.
Detroit had sold out its previous two home games this season.
