Another Jaguars home game blacked out
Not even a five-game winning streak at home, an in-state opponent and playoff implications could prevent the Jacksonville Jaguars from another blackout.
The Jaguars (7-5) failed to sell out Sunday's home game against Miami (6-6), prompting the team's ninth blackout (including preseason) in 2009. The game will not be televised in Jacksonville or in secondary markets that include Gainesville, Daytona Beach, Orlando and Savannah, Ga.
The Jaguars believed winning would help the small-market franchise sell tickets in a tough economy, but last week's game against Houston drew the smallest announced crowd (42,079) in franchise history.
Team officials are hoping to sell out next Thursday night's home finale against unbeaten Indianapolis.
