Thursday night's Jaguars vs. Washington Redskins preseason game will not be televised in the Jacksonville area, according to NFL guidelines. The game would have had to be sold out by today to avoid the blackout.
For fans wishing to see the game, tickets can still be purchased online at jaguars.com, by calling (904) 633-2000 until 6:00 p.m. Thursday or at the ALLTEL Stadium Ticket Office. Tickets can be purchased for as little as $20. The Jaguars Ticket Office will be open 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and through game time on Thursday.
There are approximately 12,300 tickets left to "Fill the House" for Jack Del Rio's regular-season home opener vs. the Buffalo Bills at 1:00 p.m. Sunday, September 14. Tickets can be purchased starting at just $20.
This will be just the fifth regular-season blackout for the Jaguars. Three games in 2001 (Cleveland, Buffalo and Kansas City) and one in 2002 (Tennessee) were blacked out locally. Television stations are not allowed to show any highlights of a game while that game is in progress, even in normal news programming. Once the game ends, the usual six-minute limit of "same day" footage applies.
