Blackout Lifted For Redskins Game
The Jaguars have officially lifted the local television blackout for this Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
This means that one season after the Jaguars were blacked out for seven of their eight regular season games, they will have successfully avoided a blackout for all home games in the 2010 season.
The rise in ticket sales for the Jaguars this season is important because they have been one of the many teams linked to the possible relocation to Los Angeles. Those talks have largely disappeared this season, as other franchises with ticket sales and stadium issues have dominated the relocation talk.
Jaguars fans, however, hope that this Sunday’s game against the Redskins is not the teams final home game of the season. The Jags still have a legitmate chance to win the AFC South and host a playoff game in January.
In order to win the division, the Jaguars need to win their final two games and hope that the Colts slip up in one of their two remaining contests.
