The Buffalo Bills home game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday has sold out after a local restaurateur committed to purchasing the remaining tickets.
The Bills announced on Wednesday that Russell Salvatore, of Russell's Steaks, Chops and More, had stepped in to prevent the game from being blacked out on local television. The Bills had said last week that there were more than 10,000 tickets unsold.
Salvatore called this his holiday gift to Bills fans.
The Bills (5-7) and Rams (5-6-1) remain on the fringes of the playoff hunt.
Buffalo's home game against Jacksonville last Sunday did not sell out. And there are thousands of tickets unsold for Buffalo's season finale against the New York Jets on Dec. 30.

After fear that the contest would not be broadcast due to lack of ticket sales, local business owner Russell J. Salvatore bought the remaining tickets to avoid a second straight local blackout. Itâ...

After rough stretches, the Buffalo Bills and St. Louis Rams are back in the playoff conversation.
That could change for one of them Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
After splitting their first six games and being tied for the AFC East lead, the Bills dropped three in a row. Buffalo, though, has won two of three to improve to 5-7 and is tied with Miami and the Jets, with all three...
Flash back to August for a moment. The defense was expected to serve as the primary strength for the Bills in 2012. While question marks lingered at linebacker and in the defensive backfield, the revamped defensive line was expected to be the centerpiece of an elite unit.
Flash forward to week 13 and the Bills defense is still digging out from the bottom portion of the leagueâs...
The St. Louis Rams will play against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Both teams had expectations before the season began that they would be chasing after a wild card spot when Week 14 rolled around. Instead both teams find themselves riddled with questions.
St. Louis has not addressed the issues at wide receiver and have been inconsistent throughout the year. The player...
(Author's note: I came up with the general theme and "Stop it." idea halfway through writing this. Hence why it seems a bit disorganized. Still in better shape than the Bills, I think.)
