'Monday Night Football' to be shown in San Diego

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

San Diego fans will be able to see "Monday Night Football" on television.

The local television blackout was lifted today, clearing the way for San Diego's home game against Brett Favre and the New York Jets to be shown locally.

Today was the deadline for the game to be declared a sell out and for the blackout to be lifted. This is the second time in as many San Diego home games that the game was in danger of being blacked out locally.
