Chiefs officials say enough tickets have been sold to avoid a local television blackout of Saturday night's preseason game against the Houston Texans.
The game will be televised live at 7 p.m. on Channel 5.
Other teams are not as fortunate. And this might be the sign of the times for the 2009 season.
The Chiefs haven't had a regular-season home game blacked out since 1991, a string of 149 straight games.
Maybe that strategy of requiring fans to buy exhibition game tickets if they want tickets to the Pittsburgh or Dallas regular-season games is working.
