As the Buffalo Bills continue their mid-season slide, the local fans are losing interest.
The Bills announced today that Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans has not sold out and will be blacked out on local television.
If they had wanted the game to be on local television, the Bills could have bought any unsold tickets at 34 percent of face value, which the NFL allows teams to do in order to quality as a “sellout” for the purpose of getting the blackout lifted. Sometimes teams like the Dolphins think that’s worth it as an investment in helping the team reach its fan base, even if the fan base isn’t buying tickets.
But the Bills decided against using that approach. And so the only people in the Buffalo area who will see this game are the ones who buy a ticket.
