Supermarkets, bank, local business avert NFL blackouts

Stores and banks to the rescue!

Three of the four playoff games this weekend were in jeopardy of being blacked out because not all tickets were sold.

However, local businesses came through on Friday.

In Indianapolis, Meijer, a store that sells everything from groceries to treadmills to jewelry, came through.

In Cincinnati, the food chain Kroger got Chad Johnson off the hook and saved the day.

And in Green Bay, banks, local tv stations and a health care company had to purchase the remaining tickets so the Packers-Eagles game could be see in Wisconsin.
