Indianapolis Colts still have 4,500 unsold tickets for playoff game, in danger of blackout


In yet another sign that the Indianapolis Colts are going to be just fine with Andrew Luck at the helm of the franchise, the Indianapolis Colts will play a home playoff game this weekend when they host the 11-5 Kansas City Chiefs. It’s an exciting event for a franchise that had no idea what would happen when Peyton Manning departed.

The only thing is, they might not get to see it.

As we continually see problems with blackouts throughout the league, the Colts have announced that they still have 4,500 unsold tickets for their date with the Chiefs of the AFC West on Saturday. Because of this, the game is now in danger of being blacked out on local television in Indianapolis.

You can add this to the list that already includes the games in Cincinnati and Green Bay that are also in danger of being blacked out. If the tickets aren’t sold by 4:35 PM ET today, then the game will not be seen locally.

This is not a good sign for these teams, neither is it for the NFL. This lack of local support, quite frankly, is astonishing.

    How are these games about to be blacked out? Especially the colts. They have sold out every game for the last 10 something years. Even in the 2-14 season not a single game was blacked out. So why would the most important game in the andrew luck era be blacked out??? The NFL needs to do something about these games. Its a joke if the 3 out of the 4 playoff games will be blacked out
