ALAMEDA -- The Raiders game Sunday against the New Orleans Saints will be shown on local television, the club announced.

Attendance in the last two games has been down -- 51,634 against Jacksonville and 52,055 against Tampa Bay -- but the club was able to declare sellouts with a new league rule that allows games to be shown on local television if they sell 85 percent of non-suite tickets.

It is the fifth consecutive game to be televised to the local fan base and 13th in a row.
