Despite not having won a game this season, the Raiders still managed to sell out their home game this Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. This means the game will be televised locally in the Bay Area.

This is now 12-straight home games and 25 of the last 26 games in Oakland which have been televised locally for the Raiders (not including the game in London which was also sold out). The last blacked out home game came against Cleveland in week 13 of the 2012 season. was packed to watched the then 0-1 Raiders in their home opener against the Houston Texans. Now they return three losses later to watch their team in their first division game of the 2014 season.

With Mt Davis tarped over, Coliseum seats about 54,000. The Raiders have just seven regular season home games this season with one of those home games having been played in London.
