ALAMEDA -- Sunday’s game between the Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers has been sold out and will be televised locally. The Raiders announced their fourth home sellout in as many games late Thursday morning.
Blackouts were common before this season, but an offseason decision to decrease stadium capacity to 52,300 has made it easier to sell enough general tickets to keep games on local television.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. and will be shown on CBS affiliates, including KPIX Ch. 5 in the Bay Area.
The visiting Steelers are 2.5-point favorites heading into a showdown of 2-4 teams.
