The San Diego Chargers say Sunday's home game against the Baltimore Ravens will be blacked out in Southern California because more than 9,000 general admission tickets remained unsold 72 hours before kickoff.

LET'S GET NUTS!

NFL fans are a special breed, and they bring their own brand of craziness on game day.

It will be the second blackout this season for the Chargers (4-6), who are desperately trying to remain alive in the wild-card race. Their home game against Atlanta on Sept. 23 was blacked out.

The blackout for their game against Kansas City on Nov. 1 was lifted only after several corporate sponsors guaranteed the sale of an estimated 10,000 tickets.

San Diego is three games behind Denver in the AFC West race, a deficit that's more like four games since the Broncos swept the season series.

Of the three remaining home games after Sunday, only the season-finale against the Oakland Raiders has a realistic chance of selling out.
