Found September 21, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders announced they have avoided blackouts, and their home games on Sunday will be televised locally. The San Diego Chargers' home game against Atlanta pitting a pair of 2-0 teams, will be blacked out in the San Diego area. More than 9,000 tickets were reportedly still available at the deadline. The Dolphins and Raiders aren't necessarily sellouts, but they sold enough tickets to satisfy the non-black out threshhold. "We expect a very full house" Sunday, a Raiders spokeman told the Contra Costa Times. The Dolphins announced Friday that enough tickets were sold following an extension granted by the league that Miami's game against the Jets on Sunday will be shown locally. However, the team said seat do remain available.

The curious case of Heyward-Bey

Darrius Heyward-Bey, the much maligned 7th overall pick from 2009 has been a conundrum for most of his 3 years in the Silver & Black. A likely first or high second round pick in 2009 even had Davis not reached for him with a top 10 selection, would likely still be a disappointment even if falling into the early second round based solely upon his numbers. Heyward-Bey has...

DAVIE, Fla. Theres a guy wearing green who Wednesday actually put the Dolphins and playoffs in the same sentence. No, not the Dolphins shade of green, the Jets one.
