Found December 13, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
The Buffalo Bills are close to an agreement to continue their annual Toronto series beyond this season, but to make it successful they are drastically lowering the ticket price.

The Bills’ Toronto series serves purpose, but leaves much to be desired as there is nothing like playing in front of a rowdy Buffalo crowd at Ralph Wilson.
