EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings' sellout streak continues.
Steve LaCroix, the Vikings' vice president of sales and marketing, said in an email on Wednesday morning there are a limited number of tickets remaining for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.
That means the game is considered a sellout and will be televised locally on Fox. It's the 142nd consecutive sellout for the Vikings, who haven't had a local TV blackout since 1997.
The Broncos returned tickets from their visiting team allotment. Those can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
Sunday's game will be a noon kickoff. It was originally scheduled for a 3:05 p.m. kickoff on CBS until the NFL decided to move the time and network to ensure a wider national audience.
