Rams meet sellout requirements to avoid local blackout

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Rams met NFL sellout requirements for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, and the game will be televised locally.

The team said Friday that support from several corporations including Express Scripts, Energizer, Build-A-Bear and KTVI ensured the game met requirements. St. Louis had received a 24-hour extension to muster support.

Tickets remained for the game against the Seattle Seahawks, although interest has increased since the Rams took quarterback Sam Bradford with the first pick of the draft.

St. Louis was 1-15 last year and ended a 14-game home losing streak last week with a 30-16 victory over the Washington Redskins. The last three home games last year were blacked out on local TV.
