SAN DIEGO -- The San Diego Chargers say enough tickets have been sold to lift the local television blackout of Monday night's game against AFC West-leading Denver.

The Chargers haven't had a regular-season blackout since 2004. Both of their home exhibition games were blacked out this year, and the club warned that there might be regular-season blackouts as well.

Denver is 5-0 and the Chargers are 2-2.
