The Jaguars have been granted a 24-hour extension to the NFL blackout deadline. The team has until 1 p.m. ET Friday to sell enough tickets for their game against the Raiders to be televised locally.

The first-place Jags asked for an extension for their last home game against the Browns on Nov. 21 and sold out their non-premium seats. It was their sixth home game this season avoiding a blackout after having 9-of-10 home games blacked out in 2009.

The surprising Jaguars have a 7-5 record and are one game ahead of the Colts in the AFC South. The Raiders are 6-6, two games back in the AFC West.

The way we see it

Teams usually request an extension to the blackout deadline when they are confident they can sell their non-premium seats, so the Jags' game on Sunday will likely be televised locally. It has been a big turnaround for Jacksonville this season in terms of getting fans to their games, and it certainly should help now that they are in playoff contention.
