With about 7,000 tickets still unsold, the Buffalo Bills have announced their home game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday will not be broadcast on local television.
It's the second straight Bills home game that's been blacked out. And there's a chance the string will extend to the following week when Buffalo closes its home schedule against Denver on Christmas Eve. The Bills have traditionally had difficulty selling out home games after Thanksgiving, when the weather turns wintry.
It's no help that Buffalo (5-8) is in the midst of a six-game losing streak that's knocked the team out of playoff contention.
The Bills did purchase a number of unsold tickets, which have been donated to members of the military the United Way and local high school football programs.
