Jason Campbell's home debut won't be seen by many Raiders fans, as the team's Week Two game vs. the Rams has been blacked out due to NFL rules.

The league requires a game must be sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff. The Raiders have had trouble selling out the 63,000 seats in the Oakland Coliseum quite often lately, as Sunday will mark the team's eighth consecutive blackout and 77th of the team's 121 home games since moving to Oakland in 1995, according to The Associated Press. Fans within a 75-mile radius of the Coliseum will not be able to watch the game on TV.

Earlier today the league announced that the Jaguars-Chargers game in San Diego also would not be shown locally. The Lions still had not sold out their home opener vs. the Eagles, but the NFL has granted Detroit a 24-hour extension to sell their final 2,000 tickets.
