Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Green Bay Packers announced on Friday that they sold the remaining tickets available for Sunday's game against San Francisco to avoid a blackout, thanks to help from corporate sponsors and television affiliates.

The NFL extended the blackout deadline until Friday afternoon which was enough time for Green Bay to sell the remaining tickets.

“A unique season and other factors contributed to having tickets available, but with the support of our fans and partners, we’re looking forward to a great atmosphere Sunday at Lambeau Field for the playoff game against the 49ers," said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.

Temperatures for Sunday's game are expected to drop below zero and could be one of the coldest games ever at Lambeau Field.
