The Raiders asked for, and received, a one-day extension from the league in hopes of selling enough tickets to ensure the game being televised locally.
The Raiders sold out all eight of their regular-season home games last season and sold enough tickets for the first three this season for them to be televised locally.
Historically, whenever the Raiders asked for an extension, that game ended up being televised locally. Therefore, it’s likely that Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccanners will fall into that category as well.
