Chiefs use extension to avoid local TV blackout of game vs. Bills

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Chiefs' local television streak continues.

The Chiefs announced Friday that they had sold enough tickets to Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills (4-8) to avoid a TV blackout.

The Chiefs (3-9) haven't had a game blacked out since late in the 1990 season -- a streak of 156 games. They requested a 24-hour extension from the NFL on Thursday because there were still tickets to be sold.

The streak could be in trouble next week because the two-win Cleveland Browns are the Chiefs' final home opponent.
