On Friday, the Raiders received a 24-hour extension of the 72-hour deadline for selling all non-premium tickets to their Monday night home game against the Chargers.
On Saturday, they announced that the tickets had been sold.
And so every Week One game will be televised in the home teams' local markets.
The hot spots were Oakland, Arizona, Cincinnati, and Tampa. The first three received extensions in order to get the tickets sold.
Next week, potential blackouts loom in Detroit, Jacksonville, and San Diego.
