ot that it's a big surprise or anything, but the game on Sunday between the San Diego Chargers and the Carolina Panthers will be blacked out in Southern California. They only way you'll be able to follow every play of the game in Southern California will be via radio.
With the Charger's playoffs hopes looking bleak, facing a team that has no chance at the playoffs, and the fans of the Chargers not being big fans of the current coaching staff or front office administrators, it's no surprise that San Diegans are not buying the same amount of tickets that they once were.
Nearly 11,000 tickets still remain for the game and can still be purchased, but many Chargers fans have become content with following the game on the Red Zone Channel or on the radio until a better product is put on the field. Source: SBNation Attached Thumbnails

According to USA Today Sports, the San Diego Chargers are so desperate to sell tickets that they used Groupon to help them try to sell out this Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Chargers waded into the land of discounted microdermabrasion treatments and half-priced speedboat tours this week by offering tickets for Sunday’s game on Groupon. For the low price of $68, buyers would...
With Ronnie Brown expected to miss Sunday's game, the Chargers want to get Ryan Mathews heavily involved in the offense. SOURCE: Michael Gehlken, San Diego Union-TribuneFantasy Spin:Gehlken expects Mathews to approach his career-high in touches (28) Sunday against the Panthers. Mathews has been largely disappointing this season, rushing for zero 100-yard games and just one touchdown...
Tweet The good news for the San Diego Chargers is they’re in second place in the AFC West. The bad news is a brutal middle-of-the-season stretch, where they went 1-7, has the Chargers at 5-8 and leaves the team with little chance of making the playoffs. It has also contributed to quite a few empty seats [...]
Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell (foot, toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego. Coach Ron Rivera called it 50-50 when asked about the chance of Lafell playing.Fantasy Spin:Not only does LaFell have a turf toe injury, he's also dealing with a chipped bone in his foot. Louis Murphy will start if LaFell is inactive and caught five balls for 36 yards last week.
Carolina Panthers (4-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-8)
I picked the Chargers to win at home against the Ravens and Bengals respectively in week 12 and 13 because, among other reasons, they always start playing really well at this point in the season, even when their season has been lost. Well, they couldn’t quite close the deal in either of those games, though they made it close and...
The Chargers, who can’t seem to do anything right lately (I’d call them “loveable” but that’s far, far from the truth) resorted to using Groupon on Monday to try to sell out this Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Groupon was for an end zone seat priced at $68, which included a $20 voucher for use at the concession stands. Per Ticketmaster, the...
There was something of a controversy that came about following the Panthers' upset victory over the Falcons last Sunday, when Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy told Falcons players to "get the f**k off our field."
Proving payback is indeed a female dog, it was the same comment quarterback Matt Ryan made after Atlanta's Week 4 win.
Though, as we've come...

Guyton, a fifth-year pro, spent the 2012 preseason with the Dolphins. He played for the Patriots from 2008-11.
Last season, Guyton played in 13 games with six starts for the Patriots and made 47 tackles and one interception. Guyton adds depth for the Chargers at linebacker...
The San Diego Chargers and Carolina Panthers are coming off impressive wins - one against a potential playoff team and the other against a division champion.
Those victories just came a little too late.
San Diego may enter Sunday still clinging to the slimmest hopes for a playoff berth as it hosts Carolina, which has already been eliminated.
The Chargers (5-8) lost four straight...
There are only so many chances you can give a team, especially if that team is the Atlanta Falcons.
One week after holding off a late push from the New Orleans Saints, the Falcons went on the road looking to send a message against the lowly Carolina Panthers. Instead, the Panthers drubbed the Falcons, with Cam Newton running wild over a defenseless Atlanta defense.
The Falcons lost...
