- The Green Bay Packers say they're down to less than 1,000 tickets yet to be sold for Sunday's home playoff game.
The NFL on Thursday gave the team an extra day to sell 3,000 remaining tickets and avoid a blackout in the television markets of Green Bay, the Fox Cities, Milwaukee and Wausau.
With a long waiting list for season tickets, not selling out a playoff game is an unusual scenario for the Packers.
The last time a Packers home game didn't sell out was in January 1983 when they hosted the St. Louis Cardinals in a first-round playoff game in a strike-shortened season.
If they don't sell out, some TV markets across the state, including the Rhinelander-Wausau market, will be forced to black out the game.
