All of the 77 regular-season games played in 2013 have been televised locally. The first blackout(s) could come this weekend.
In Buffalo, there’s good news. With 5,300 non-premium tickets remaining for the dawning of the Thad Lewis era, the Bills have obtained a 24-hour extension.
This could mean that the Bills and/or their sponsors have decided to pay for any remaining tickets as of 1:00 p.m. ET on Friday at 34 cents on the dollar.
Which would mean that anyone who buys tickets in the next 24 hours under the impression that it’s the only way they’ll get to see the game could be getting screwed.
But at least they’ll be getting $15 off!
Even if the Bengals-Bills game isn’t blacked out, Monday night’s Colts-Chargers game could be blacked out, especially since the Chargers have shown little inclination to reduce the minimum number of tickets to 85 percent or to buy any unsold tickets.
