CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns' game Sunday against the Oakland Raiders will be televised locally.

The Browns announced Saturday that the team had averted a local blackout within a 75-mile radius. The team said it had distributed a portion of remaining tickets to a range of local civic organizations.

Some tickets are still available for purchase by the general public.

The Browns haven't had a blackout since the final game of 1995, the team's last before former owner Art Modell moved his franchise to Baltimore.

After facing the Raiders, the Browns will conclude this season at home against Jacksonville.
