Fans in Southern California will be able to watch their local team play in Week Seven, while fans in Florida won't be so fortunate.

The Chargers reported that enough tickets have been sold to avoid a blackout of the Patriots-Chargers game on Sunday in San Diego. Despite a disappointing 2-4 record, enough seats were sold to be able to show the game on TV. The team stated that 12,000 tickets remain available for their next home game in Week Eight vs. the Titans.

Buccaneers fans will not be able to watch their team take on the Rams this Sunday, as the NFL announced the game will be blacked out on Tampa-area television. Brian McCarthy of the NFL PR staff tweeted that the Rams-Bucs is the tenth game of 2010 to be blacked out; there were seven games at this point in 2009 blacked out and none in 2008.
