Fans to know outcome of Bills vs Lions before they see it


The Buffalo Bills will not play on live television when they play the Detroit Lions in the final preseason game.  From the Bills website:

The Bills announced that a few thousand tickets remain for the Bills vs. Detroit Lions preseason game to be played Thursday ay 6:30 p.m., at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Per NFL rules, the game was not a sellout 72 hours prior to kickoff and will not be televised locally.

The game will air on a tape-delayed basis on the official Buffalo Bills television station, channel 7 in Buffalo, Friday, September 4th at 7:00 p.m.  WHAM-TV in Rochester will air the game on Saturday, September 5th at 8:00 p.m.  WTVH-TV in Syracuse will air the game on Saturday, September 5th at 6:00 p.m.

After the way the first few games have gone, I would have to say most fans won’t be missing much.
