ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Sunday's game between the Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars will be blacked out on local television after the home team announced on Wednesday that more than 15,000 tickets remain unsold.
The Bills have lost four of the last five games after a 3-3 start, and at 4-7, are all but out of playoff contention. The Jaguars (2-9) have lost eight of the last nine games and are in last place in the AFC South.
"It is tough," Bills running back Fred Jackson said. "You definitely want a full crowd to play in front of. But we will come out and play and try and put on a show for the fans that are in the stands. That is just about it, come out there and do what we can and show up and play football. The fans that are coming out to watch, hopefully we can go out and get a win for them."
More than 15,000 tickets also remain for the Dec. 30 game vs. the New York Jets and more than 10,000 are available for the Dec. 9 game with St. Louis.

Nothing says 2-9 like coming up with a new item called the “Jag Rag.” The Jag Rag will end up costing you around $10 but the good news is that portions of the proceeds go to charity. So at least if you decide to buy one of these terrible looking things, you will at least be helping out a cause.H/T: Deadspin

Too bad for the Bills and their fans, it's a little late for a realistic postseason push.

Jaguars signed RB Jordan Todman off the Vikings practice squad.
Todman’s addition is a sign that Jalen Parmele (groin) is unlikely to play after dragging his leg through the hole in last week’s game. Expect Rashad Jennings to start at Buffalo with Todman adding depth as the third-stringer behind Montell Owens.
Todman played college football with the UConn. He finished his...
Ignoring the alliteration of the title of this article, we were approached this week, as sometimes happens, by Bloguin's own Bills blogger, "Joe," for a Q&A. So, we exchanged some questions, and the following is his answers. You can find my answers to his thought provoking questions here. Enjoy.

Jason Babin isn’t one to keep a cork in it when a microphone is put in his face, and he kept to that reputation only a few short hours after his arrival in Jacksonville. The new defensive end for the Jaguars took the opportunity to rail against his former team and the media following his [...]

Ryan Talbot: Bills 21-10
I predict the game is blacked out and we’re all better off for it! Seriously, Buffalo 20-10.
Brandon Hess: Bills 34-24
Buffalo can’t get off the field on third downs, and have lost all three match-ups against the AFC South this season. Despite these trends I think this is the week the Bills put together a solid 60 minutes on both sides of the ball. ...
When blacked out Bills games roll around it becomes very difficult to stay vested in their success. Considering that Sunday’s game along with the St. Louis and Jets games are likely to be blacked out, I’m pretty sure my Sundays are going to be free.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have claimed two-time Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin off waivers from Philadelphia.
The Jaguars (2-9) will pay the remaining 1.69 million of Babin's 2012 salary, essentially taking a low-risk look at someone who could significantly upgrade one of the league's worst pass rushes.
Jacksonville has a league-low 13 sacks...

Despite the fact that the 1978 Buffalo Bills were not a very good team, they hold a prestigious modern-day NFL team record (essentially by default). The Chuck Knox-coached Bills finished 5-11, with opposing teams licking their chops in anticipation of pounding the ball against the porous Bills rushing defense; that season, Buffalo allowed an average of 201.8 rushing YPG, and allowed...
