On Tuesday evening, the Buffalo Bills announced that two home games had been sold out on the first day single-game tickets were available to the general public. The team's September 12 home opener against the Miami Dolphins is sold out, as is a November 28 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
In addition, the team announced limited ticket availability for the October 3 home game against the New York Jets. Rex Ryan's club did not visit Orchard Park in 2009, as Buffalo's "home game" in that series took place in Toronto.
That leaves four games - the Jacksonville Jaguars (October 10), Detroit Lions (November 14), Cleveland Browns (December 12) and New England Patriots (December 26) home games - for which ticket availability is still abundant.
This news is surprising, given the fact that Buffalo is emerging from an off-season full of unpopular decisions and that ticket prices were raised (if only slightly) earlier this year. Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News points out that ticket prices were raised 15.5% on average; the fact that two games are sold out so early into the Bills' ticket push is encouraging.
Which games are you going to this year, folks?
