Raiders game vs. Browns blacked out

Andy Lyons

The Oakland Raiders game against the Cleveland Browns will be blacked out due to lack of ticket sales.

The Oakland Raiders announced that Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns would be blacked out. That ends a streak of 13 straight televised home games the team has enjoyed since the start of the 2011 NFL regular season. The last game that wasn't televised was the season finale in 2010 when the Raiders took on the Colts.

The Raiders have fallen on hard times, and it appears the fans are starting to tune out their team as the season turns to December. After making some incremental progress back to .500 in the 2011 regular season, Oakland has fallen back to 3-8 with four straight losses. The Raiders are now likely going to miss the playoffs for the tenth straight season.

The Raiders must sell a minimum of 85 percent of their tickets three days before the game in order to avoid blackout.

The Raiders and Browns are set to kick off Sunday from O.co Coliseum at 1:25 p.m. PT.
