The Bills don’t have much going for them right now, but they do have a helpful owner.
Buffalo, bumbling along at 3-7 and calling the NFL offices this week to complain about the team’s schedule, has at least avoided a blackout for another week. The Bills were having trouble selling tickets for Sunday’s game against the Jets, but owner Ralph Wilson Jr. has stepped up and — for the second time this season — bought the remaining tickets to make sure fans can watch the game on TV.
“Mr. Wilson has again generously guaranteed the purchase of the remaining tickets for this weekend’s game,” Bills president and CEO Russ Brandon said, according to buffalobills.com. “As part of our Salute to Service initiative, Mr. Wilson has donated the proceeds of all remaining tickets sold to Wounded Warrior Project.”
Fans can still buy tickets to the game, which is due to include several tributes to members of the Armed Forces.
