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.
