The NFL is riding an impressive streak of having all its games on local television, but that could be about to end.
According to Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, the Bills are in danger of not selling out, and thus having the league’s first local TV blackout of the season.
Bills CEO Russ Brandon said the team still had around 4,500 tickets to sell by Thursday’s deadline, and that it would be “difficult” to avoid a blackout.
Bills owner Ralph Wilson guaranteed their Oct. 11 game against the Bengals would sell out (ostensibly by buying his own seats at 34 cents on the dollar), but if he doesn’t do it again, fans in Western New York will have to watch something other than Jets-Bills.
Or, get to, as the case may be.
