Bills 2,000 tickets short of Thursday night sellout

After facing the well-rested Patriots (and likely losing) on Sunday, the Bills will host the surging (Sunday’s loss notwithstanding) Miami Dolphins on a short week.

Bills CEO Russ Brandon said on WGR 550 that 2,000 tickets remain for the Week 11 AFC East clash.

Brandon said he’s confident that the tickets will be sold.  The deadline for doing so comes in five days, on Monday night at 8:30 p.m. ET.  That deadline can be extended if the Bills think the rest of the tickets can be sold — or if the Bills commit to buying any unsold seats at 34 cents on the dollar while creating a false sense of urgency that if the unsold tickets aren’t bought before the new deadline the game won’t be televised locally.

Brandon also said that there has been no “head-dropping or moping” within the organization, even though the Bills have parlayed high preseason hopes into a 3-5 first half of the season.

With 3-6 seemingly inevitable, next Thursday’s game against Miami could be the equivalent of that playoff game the Bills haven’t had since 1999, since if they lose that one their season will as a practical matter be over.

Which would then spark plenty of head-dropping and moping.

  1. stationed at Little Rock AFB , I’m a season ticket holder. I just want to say while I love my Bills, but I can’t drive that far, use up my leave when I have a sick family member, to watch a 3-5 football team that gave us false hope. I was lucky to sell these tickets for face value. The rest will either be given to charity or family. I want a QB.

  2. So are you suggesting that if the team were better than 3-5 you would leave your sick child? Im confused here.

    And do you normally drive up from Little Rock for each game?

  3. The Patriots will see a different Defense than the one earlier in the season. The game will not be a Patriots blowout, the score will be much closer than the last time they played each other. Look for the Bills Defensive-line to cause some trouble for Brady. The team is starting to play better together.

  4. Seems like the Bills face a well-rested Pats team every year. Or at least five out of the last eight years.

    24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case.

    Coincidence? I think not.
