The Jaguars are warning fans that Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns at Alltel Stadium could result in the franchise's first-ever television blackout of a Jaguars regular-season home game.
In a team release today, Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver said: "The potential for the first regular-season blackout in Jaguars history is very real. Our team has won its first two games and is back in first place in the AFC Central Division. We need more of the electric atmosphere and inspiration we all felt on Sunday when we beat the Titans."
NFL blackout guidelines require that all tickets must be sold by 72 hours in advance of kickoff (4:15 p.m. this Thursday), or the game may not be shown to the local TV market. About 7,000 tickets remain for this Sunday's game against the 1-1 Browns.
