All games sold out for 11th consecutive week  
 


(Nov. 17, 2006) -- It's now 11 straight weeks of advance sellouts.

All games of the NFL schedule for this Sunday and Monday, Week 11, have sold out in advance of the local TV blackout deadline. That means every NFL game this weekend will be televised in the home-team market for an unprecedented 11th straight week.

Every game this season has been sold out at least 72 hours in advance and televised locally. Previously, the most sellout weekends in one season were four in 2002 and 2005.

It will be the 24th time since the NFL blackout policy took effect in 1973 that blackouts have been lifted for all games on a single weekend. The 24 times have been once in 1998; three times in 2000; once in 2001; four times in 2002 and 2005; and 11 times this season.

The NFL blackout policy states that games sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff can be televised in the home city.
