Bills vs. Dolphins: Buffalo Bills Announce Sellout, Avoid Local Blackout

New, comments

Thursday night's NFL Network game between the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins is officially sold out. Buffalo will be making its first prime-time appearance since 2009.

The Buffalo Bills have announced that Thursday night's nationally televised home game against the Miami Dolphins has sold out. That means that for the local television market, the game will be televised on WBBZ rather than being blacked out.

This will be Buffalo's first home game televised on NFL Network. They have previously appeared on the network in a home game played up in Toronto, but this will be the network's first foray into Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Buffalo has not played a home game in prime time since the 2008 season, when three Trent Edwards interceptions in the first quarter and a last-second field goal miss from Rian Lindell highlighted a 29-28 loss to Brady Quinn and the Cleveland Browns. (Yes, seriously. I was there. It was everything you're feeling and more.) It'll also be the team's first prime time performance since a Week 1 loss to New England in 2009, which marked Terrell Owens' debut in Buffalo.

The Bills and the Dolphins kick off at 8:20 PM ET on Thursday night - and now, at minimum, you have the option of tuning in wherever you may live.
