Tampa Bay Buccaneers game vs. San Diego Chargers to be blacked out Sunday

HERALD STAFF REPORTNovember 8, 2012 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Thursday that Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers will not be shown on local television.

The Bucs were required to sell at least 85 percent of their non-premium tickets before 1 p.m. Thursday to have the NFL blackout lifted.

Of Tampa Bay's four previous home games, only the Oct. 21 battle against the New Orleans Saints has been shown on local television.
