The San Diego Chargers' game against the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow on Sunday will be seen on local television, according to the team, which says it has sold enough tickets to lift an NFL blackout.

Tebow, an often-maligned young quarterback from the University of Florida, has led the Broncos (5-5) to four wins in their last five games, including three victories in a row.

Denver is one game behind the Oakland Raiders (6-4) in the AFC West standings. The Chargers, who are coming off a 31-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, and Kansas City Chiefs are tied for third in the division at 4-6.

Part of the festivities Sunday will include longtime All-Pro linebacker Junior Seau's induction into the Chargers' Hall of Fame.

He is to be introduced by Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Fouts during the ceremony.

The game, which starts at 1:15 p.m., will be shown on Channel 2 in the Los Angeles area.
