Packers playoff blackout: Fans not buying Green Bay Packers playoff tickets

Packers playoff blackout news isn't positive. Fans aren't buying Green Bay Packers playoff tickets, which could lead to a blackout of local television coverage this weekend. A report from ESPN on Tuesday night (Dec. 31) reveals that there are still 11,000 tickets left unsold for the wild card game against the San Francisco 49ers. It's shocking that the fans aren't coming out to support the team as well as they have in the past.

The game is on Sunday (Jan. 5) at Lambeau Field after the team won the NFC North crown on the final day of the regular season. By beating the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers led his team back to the postseason and now they have a chance to really make some noise. Maybe the fans just haven't bought into the team just yet, as the defense has definitely shown some weaknesses this season. With the news earlier today that Clay Matthews will miss the game, it has just gotten worse.

The league extended the deadline to Thursday (Jan. 2) at 4:30 p.m. local time for the stadium to be sold out. After that point, a Green Bay Packers playoff blackout likely becomes a reality. The NFL can decide to add another extension if they are getting close to selling out Lambeau Field, but they have a long way to go to finish selling those 11,000 tickets that are left.
