Six up. Six out. As in six Raider home games that were up for sale when the season began and thus far all six have been sold out.
Something fans without tickets in the East Bay can be thankful for on this holiday is that they won’t be blacked out. Today the team announced Sunday’s clash with the Chicago Bears will be played in front of a capacity crowd.
Without getting too caught up in all the good vibes around Raider Nation this speaks well of Al Davis’ then controversial decision to promote Hue Jackson. Though there is still much work to be done, Jackson’s approach has benefited the franchise in many ways.
With two more home dates left there is a good chance the Raiders could run the table starting a sellout streak that will hopefully last for a long time. Of course the best way to put a bow on this gift of a season would be to get another home game sometime in January after the regular season is over.
For now let’s just focus on the Bears.
