CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Today's Browns game against the San Diego Chargers will not be blacked out on local television.

Kickoff is slated for 4:05 p.m. and if you are heading down to tailgate you should definitely bundle up. 19 Action News Meteorologist Jon Loufman says temps will only be in the high 20's with 30 being the highest.

For those of you not going to the game today you can huddle up on the couch and watch thanks to 19 Action News and two other companies that bought up the remaining tickets for today's game so a blackout was avoided locally.

The names of the two other companies who purchased tickets were not disclosed by the Cleveland Browns on Friday.

The Browns have not had a game blacked out since their return to the NFL in 1999.

The tickets bought by 19 Action News were given away to three local organizations. The Cleveland USO, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland and The Boys & Girls Clubs of Akron.

Each organization received tickets Friday afternoon from 19 Action News personalities Sharon Reed, Jeff Tanchak and Paul Joncich.

Enjoy the game Browns fans!
