 SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego Chargers have been spared the embarrassment of a local TV blackout of Monday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts after ESPN and some local sponsors guaranteed the purchase of approximately 8,500 tickets.
ESPN says it will give a portion of the tickets to military and charitable organizations.
The Chargers had received a 24-hour extension from the NFL before announcing Saturday that a sellout was guaranteed.
Among the companies helping buy tickets were two restaurants in which Chargers President Dean Spanos owns stock.
A similar arrangement was necessary last year to avoid a blackout of a game against Kansas City shown on the NFL Network.
The Chargers had four blackouts last year, when they finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
