Rams purchase tickets for Sunday sellout

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have purchased unsold tickets to sell out Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals and avoid a local television blackout.

More than 4,000 tickets were unsold in the middle of the week. The Rams received a one-day extension on Thursday before electing to buy the tickets and distribute them to local charities and youth groups.

Limited seats remained for the game against the NFC West leaders led by former Ram star Kurt Warner.

Kevin Demoff, the team's chief operating officer, said the franchise felt it necessary to sell out the game in hopes of building momentum.

The Rams don't anticipate sellouts for games against the Seahawks and Texans later this year, but remains hopeful of selling out the season finale on Jan. 3 against the 49ers.
