Game on … TV

The Vikings' first playoff game in eight years will be televised after a weeklong buying surge of tickets.

The Vikings came down to the wire, but they will avoid their first local television blackout since 1997 after selling about 20,000 tickets this week to their Sunday wild card game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The game will be broadcast on local TV (KMSP Fox 9 in the Twin Cities) at 3:30 p.m. Central.

It is the 115th consecutive sellout for the Vikings, although there are still a limited number of tickets available. Prices for the remaining tickets to this game are $50, $80, $120 and $160, and fans are encouraged to visit (open 24 hours a day) or call Ticketmaster at (651) 989-5151 or toll free at (800) 745-3000.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early to pick up tickets left at the will-call windows due to the heavier-than-usual demand on those areas during this game.
