Sunday's game will be televised locally

Posted by: Mark Craig under Vikings, Bears, NFC Updated: December 15, 2011 - 8:49 AM

Vikings VP Steve LaCroix has announced that Sunday's game against the Saints at the Metrodome has sold out and will be televised locally.

So the streak lives on for at least two more weeks. The Vikings have not had a game blacked out locally since the end of the 1997 season.

After Sunday's game, the Vikings travel to Washington before ending the season at home against the Bears on Jan. 1. Tickets are still available for the Bears game. And we're guessing that might be a tough sell since the team might be 2-13 and it's a noon game after New Year's Eve.

The Saints did return some tickets, so there is a limited amount of them available at Ticketmaster.
