Dolphins-Jets May Be Blacked Out Locally
The Miami Dolphins have yet to sell enough tickets to ensure that their No. 1 rivalry game will be televised Sunday, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
The Dolphins were granted an extension by the NFL until Friday in the hope of selling 85 percent of non-premium tickets needed under the league's revised blackout policy for Sunday's game against the New York Jets at Sun Life Stadium to be televised locally.
"We're hopeful of getting it on local television. We're still hopeful of selling this game out," Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said Thursday. "We said last week that we would be looking at this on a week-to-week basis."
The Dolphins bought up an undisclosed number of tickets to get last week's home opener on television. The Jets game was expected to sell well enough on its own merits, considering numerous New York fans in South Florida and the Dolphins coming off an impressive victory against the Raiders behind rookie quaterback Ryan Tannehill, factor in Tim Tebow and former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano with the Jets, and the game offers arguably the most compelling story lines of the eight-game home schedule.
Several thousand tickets still needed to be sold, according to a source.
