For any NFL fans in Southern California looking to take in this weekend's marquee matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the San Diego Chargers on TV, the news out of the area is not good.
According to the Chargers' Twitter, the game will be unavailable in the Southern California market because of NFL broadcast restrictions. The blackout kicked in after the Chargers were unable to sell out Qualcomm Stadium by midday Thursday.
