EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings will finish another season without a local television blackout.

Chief marketing officer Steve LaCroix said Wednesday a “very limited number” of tickets remained for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. That means the team’s streak of consecutive sellouts has been extended to 144 contests, including playoff, regular season and exhibition games. That’s a span of 14 straight seasons.

Sunday will also mark the final scheduled game on the team’s current lease at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, now known as Mall of America Field. The Vikings moved in for the 1982 season, and the contract expires Feb. 1. The push for a new stadium is continuing.
