Bucs are 7,400 tickets short of having Falcons game on TV

Bucs short of sellout

The Bucs are one of the NFL's hottest teams, winning four straight and five of six. But will that translate into a packed house when the NFC South-leading Falcons visit Sunday?

The team announced Monday it still must sell 7,400 non-premium seats by 1 p.m. Thursday to reach the benchmark required to lift the local television blackout under NFL rules. The Bucs have had one home game televised locally this season, against the Saints in Week 7.

At this point two weeks ago, the Bucs needed to sell just fewer than 9,000 seats to lift a blackout against the Chargers and failed.
