Bills granted extension to avoid Jets game blackout


The NFL has granted the Buffalo Bills a 24-hour extension, which will give the team an opportunity to sell the remaining ticket inventory to lift the local television blackout of the Sunday, November 17 game against the New York Jets at Ralph Wilson Stadium, sponsored by the New York National Guard. The team has until Friday at 1 p.m. to sell approximately 3,500 general tickets.

The Bills encourage fans interested in attending Sunday's game to purchase tickets by logging onto, or by calling 1-877-BB-TICKS (1-877-4257). The Bills will host a number of on-field initiatives during the home game against the New York Jets to honor the members of our Armed Forces. With the help of Bills players and coaches, the New York National Guard will unfurl and unveil a full-field American flag during pregame festivities. The Guard will also conduct a live oath reaffirmation ceremony on-field at halftime during the Salute to Service game. The Bills will host 10 members of each the five military branches – Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard – on-field prior to kickoff to be honored for their service. To further honor our Armed Forces and the commitment they make to our country, Bills players will wear National Guard decals on the back of their helmets.
