The Chargers previously tried to sell tickets to their home game against the Chiefs by marketing tickets to Chiefs fans. San Diego has now adopted an approach less likely to fill up Qualcomm Stadium with fans who will be rooting for the visiting team.

In order to buy tickets to the October 15 Monday night game against the Broncos and Peyton Manning, fans now must also buy tickets to the November 1 Thursday night game against the Chiefs and Matt Cassel Brady Quinn.

It’s hard to fault the Chargers for being creative, given that they came more than 9,200 tickets short of selling out a Week Three visit from the Falcons.

Still, it’s also hard to think that it will work. While the Monday night game against Manning likely won’t be blacked out in San Diego, folks in Southern California likely will be relegated to the offerings of NBC on the night that the Chargers’ home game will be televised by NFLN.
