The Week 3 matchup between the San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons has been blacked out across Southern California.

The showdown this weekend between the undefeated San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons will be blacked out across Southern California. Due to the NFL's blackout policy, the game will not be televised since the team was unable to sellout Qualcomm Stadium by Thursday afternoon.

Here is the news from the Chargers official Twitter feed.

Fans in the San Diego area now either have the option of purchasing tickets to the game or risk missing what could be one of the better games of the season. A glance at this week's TV coverage map shows that the surrounding areas will either have the Cardinals-Eagles or Raiders-Steelers games on instead, so this truly will be a blackout for all fans in Southern California.

Kickoff between the Chargers and Falcons is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on FOX.
