There will be no local television blackouts in the NFL this weekend.

The Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers said Friday that their weekend wild-card playoff games are sellouts. Normally, teams must sell out 72 hours before kickoff to have a game broadcast in their local market. The NFL gave the Colts, Bengals and Packers an extra day to do it.

The Colts host Kansas City on Saturday. On Sunday, the Packers host San Francisco and the Bengals host San Diego.

In each case, corporations stepped up to buy big blocks of the remaining tickets, including retailer Meijer in Indy, Associated Bank in Green Bay and P&G in Cincinnati. Many will be distributed to military families and veterans.
