Bills vs. Jets, NFL Week 17: Game Blacked Out In Western NY

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

Buffalo Bills CEO Russ Brandon announced on Wednesday that this weekend's season finale between the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets has not sold out, and will be blacked out on local television.

In what was easily the least surprising announcement of the 2012 calendar year, Buffalo Bills CEO Russ Brandon announced Wednesday morning on WGR 550 that this Sunday's game against the New York Jets has not sold out, and will be blacked out on local television.

Buffalo is 0-5 so far against Rex Ryan and the Jets in three seasons under Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey. They've lost those five games by an average score of 36-17; only once has a Bills/Jets game been competitive in the last three years (a 28-24 road loss last season in New Jersey). The other four Bills losses have been by at least 16 points.

So, yeah. Nobody wants to go watch a bad Bills team play another bad team (the Jets are 6-9 and en route to their first losing season since 2007) that has consistently beaten Buffalo by three scores since the start of the decade. That is not at all surprising. It also won't be surprising if those that can watch on television on Sunday don't tune in.
