The Miami Dolphins have had an easier time than their fellow Florida franchises of selling tickets over the last few years. And although sellouts aren’t a sure thing for the Dolphins these days, they do expect to have the local TV blackout lifted with their 100th straight sellout Sunday against the Bills.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the team expects to announce another sellout today. The last time the Dolphins were blacked out in Miami was October 18, 1998 against the Rams.
The Dolphins may need help from the local CBS affiliate to get the remaining tickets sold, but they do expect to sell enough tickets to have the blackout lifted.
There haven’t been any blackouts in Miami yet this year. After Sunday against the Bills, the Dolphins have one more home game this year, next week against the Lions.
