ALAMEDA -- Sunday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers will be broadcast in the Raiders’ home market. The team sold out its allotment of general tickets for the AFC West clash, which allowed the NFL to lift the television blackout.

This is the Raiders' third straight sellout, a task made easier by an offseason decision to decrease Oakland Coliseum’s football capacity nearly 10,000 seats to 53,200. The Raiders have the NFL’s smallest stadium capacity.

The game will be broadcast on NFL Network and KRON Channel 4 in the Bay Area. Kickoff is set for 8:35 p.m.
