The San Diego Chargers are once again in danger of having their season-opener blacked on on local television, according to a report.

The San Diego Chargers home opener against the Tennessee Titans may be blacked out, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune, as several thousand tickets remain for sale for Sunday's matchup at Qualcomm Stadium.

The Bolts have until 1:25 p.m. PT Thursday to sell the majority of their remaining tickets, or the game will not appear on television in the Southern California markets. Three games of their 2010 season were blacked out, while matchups against the Cardinals and Dolphins were not televised locally last year as well.

San Diego has been promoting this game like crazy, dubbing it "White Hot Sunday" as the team will wear all white while encouraging the fans to do the same. There will also be a pre-game ceremony to retire Junior Seau's number, though none of that has been enough to get the fans to starting buying.
