ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The NFL has granted the Buffalo Bills a one-day extension to avoid becoming the NFL's first team this season to have a home game blacked out on local television.
The Bills (2-3) announced Thursday they have 5,300 tickets left for their game against the Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) on Sunday. The extension gives the Bills until Friday afternoon to sell the remaining tickets.
Buffalo had sold out its first three home games. The team has tickets remaining for three of its final home games.
The Bills' annual ``home'' game at Toronto on Dec. 1 against Atlanta won't be blacked out because Rogers Communication has essentially paid the team for the right to host the game.
The Bills failed to sell out two home games last year, and three in 2011.
