ALAMEDA -- The Raiders' game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers is sold out, and it will be televised locally, a team spokesman said Thursday.

This marks the fourth sellout in as many regular-season home games for the Raiders this season. They sold out 19 of their past 20 such games dating to the start of the 2011 season.

The Raiders and Steelers are 2-4 and in need of a victory Sunday if either hopes to remain in realistic contention for a playoff berth in the AFC.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen stopped short of calling this a must-win game. Just the same, he added: "This isn't make or break, but this is a big game for us. We need to play well and we need to get in these games against good teams and find out ways to win."
