Chiefs vs. Browns blacked out on local TV

BY foxsports • December 17, 2009

A Kansas City Chiefs home game is being blacked out locally for the first time since 1990 after the team failed to sell enough tickets for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

Chiefs officials say the game won't be televised within a 75-mile radius of Kansas City, including for subscribers of DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket.

Last week's contest against Buffalo came close to being blacked out before the Chiefs received a 24-hour extension and sold the required number of tickets.

The Chiefs (3-10) had sold out 156 straight games. The game against the Browns (2-11) is Kansas City's final home game of the year.
