ALAMEDA – The Raiders’ game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Oakland Coliseum has been sold out and will be broadcast in the team’s home market.

This marks the fifth straight sellout this season. The Raiders decreased their overall capacity to 52,300 this season, which makes sellouts considerably easier. The NFL has also made a major push to avoid the unpopular blackout rule, which prohibits games from being broadcast locally if a game doesn’t sell out. Thus far, every NFL game has had the blackout lifted.

Sunday’s game will be shown on KTVU Ch. 2, the Bay Area’s FOX affiliate.
