The Green Bay Packers announced on Thursday evening that there are about 3,000 tickets remaining for Sunday's home playoff game against San Francisco.
"With significant progress made in selling the initial 40,000 tickets available, the Packers have received an extension from the NFL on the TV blackout deadline," the team said in a news release. "The current deadline to sell all non-premium tickets and lift the blackout is now Friday, Jan. 3, at 4 p.m. CST."
Tickets, priced by the league at $102 and $125, are available at the Packers' ticket office (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday) and online at www.packers.com/tickets/single_game_tickets.
The NFL also is giving the Colts and Bengals and Packers one more day to sell their remaining playoff tickets.
The Colts announced their extension on their Web site on Thursday, about an hour before a previous extension was supposed to expire. Fewer than 3,500 tickets remained for Saturday's Wild Card game against Kansas City (11-5). The team had said about 5,500 tickets were left Wednesday night.
The Bengals (11-5) also had tickets left for their game Sunday afternoon against San Diego (9-7).
