The Jaguars may avoid a blackout in Sunday's game against the Browns.

They have been granted a 24-hour extension to the NFL blackout deadline by the NFL and have until 1 p.m. Friday to sell enough tickets to have the game televised locally.

The Jags have had quite the blackout turnaround this season, avoiding blackouts in their first five home games this year after blocking out nine of 10 home games in 2009. This is the first time this season they have asked for an extension.

3,000 non-premium tickets need to be sold to avoid a blackout.

The way we see it

Despite playing in one of the smallest markets in the NFL and considering last year's issues, the Jags have been very successful selling out home games. Usually teams ask for extensions when they are confident they can sell enough tickets to avoid a blackout, and it'd be pretty impressive for the Jags to avoid a blackout with the lowly Browns coming to town.
