The Indianapolis Colts and Green Bay Packers announced Friday that their weekend playoff games were sellouts, helping them avoid local television blackouts.
The Colts host Kansas City on Saturday and the Packers host San Francisco on Sunday in wild-card games. The Cincinnati Bengals had until late Friday afternoon to sell remaining tickets for Sunday's playoff game against San Diego.
Normally, teams must sell out 72 hours before kickoff to have a game broadcast in the local market. The NFL gave the Colts, Bengals and Packers one more day to do it.
Retailer Meijer bought 1,200 Colts-Chiefs tickets and will distribute them to the Indiana National Guard, Wish For Our Heroes and others. The Packers also sold a number of tickets to corporate interests, including Green Bay-based Associated Bank.
