Raiders continue home sellout streak

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders are now five-for-five in home sellouts this season as the team announced Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles has sold out.

It is also the 20th in the past 21 Raiders games at the O.co Coliseum to avoid a local television blackout.

Since assuming ticket sales in 2006, the Raiders have sold out 40 of 61 home games.

And since returning to Oakland after 13 seasons in Los Angeles in 1995, the Raiders will have 69 televised home games and 80 blackouts. The Raiders reduced capacity this season by tarping off about 11,000 seats, mostly on top of Mt. Davis on the east side of the stadium.
