EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings' sellout streak has survived one of the worst seasons in franchise history.

Sunday's finale against the Chicago Bears will be televised locally, Vikings vice president of sales and marketing Steve LaCroix said in an email on Wednesday, with "a very limited number of tickets still available" for purchase via Ticketmaster.

It's the 144th consecutive sellout for the Vikings, who haven't had a local TV blackout since 1997. The game is a noon kickoff and will be televised on Fox.

• The Vikings re-signed rookie Allen Reisner to the practice squad, two days after waiving him to make room on the 53-man roster for fellow tight end Mickey Shuler.
