Thursday, September 20th, 2012 at 12:50 pm in Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders game against the Pittsburgh Steelers is all but sold out and will be televised locally, the team announced Thursday afternoon.
This marks the 10th straight regular-season home game that sold out in advance of the league-mandated deadline, 72 hours before kick-off. The Raiders sold out all eight of their regular-season home game last season.
A Raiders spokesman said only that “we expect a very full house” Sunday. However, numerous fans have contacted me about the inability to find tickets anywhere on-line or through ticket brokers.
That streak will be put to the test next month, when the Raiders next play at home Oct. 21 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Raiders and Jaguars are two of six teams without a victory through the first two games this season, and the Raiders face challenging games against the Steelers, Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons between now and the Jaguars game.
