Bills avoid Sunday television blackout

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills ownership on Friday guaranteed the purchase of the remaining tickets for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, avoiding a television blackout.

The team was previously granted a 24-hour extension Thursday by the NFL to sell the 5,300 tickets that remained for the game to be considered a sellout.

The Bills would have become the first NFL team this season to have a game not air on local television. They have yet to sell-out their three remaining home games after Sunday.
