The Dolphins surprisingly have won four of their first eight games. It’s unclear whether their unexpected success has had a significant impact on ticket sales.
Regardless, Sunday’s home game against the Titans will be televised in South Florida. The Dolphins announced on Wednesday that “they have complied with the NFL requirements to allow Sunday’s game to be broadcast locally.”
The Dolphins opted to take full advantage of the ability to drop their minimum sales threshold to 85 percent of all non-premium tickets. Given the team’s recent difficulties when it comes to selling tickets, it’s likely that a few — or a lot more than a few — of the tickets were purchased by the Dolphins or one or more of the team’s sponsors at 34 cents on the dollar.
