The Buffalo Bills' season finale against the New York Jets on Sunday has predictably not sold out, and apparently will be blacked out on local television. That includes WTVH CBS-5 in Syracuse, which will get the Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts game instead.
The team announced there were more than 13,000 tickets available. The Bills (5-10) and Jets (6-9) are out of playoff contention.
This is the fourth time this season the Bills have failed to sell out a home game, but only the second that will be blacked out.
A local restaurateur purchased the remaining tickets for Buffalo's game against St. Louis on December 9 to guarantee it will be on TV. The Bills "home" game against Seattle in Toronto two weeks ago also did not sell out. The game was televised under the five-year deal Toronto-based Rogers Communications reached with the Bills host the games.
