JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars home opener against the Chiefs went dark on television.

The game on CBS was switched to the Titans-Browns game with just over five minutes to play, a no-no in local markets. CBS said on air originally that the game was switched to a more competitive game, but later came back and said it was due to technical difficulties. 

The satellite truck lost power and the signal went out with it, taking the game off the air. 

Jacksonville lost to the Chiefs 40-26.
