The Bills' game against New England sold out in time to beat the local television blackout deadline today, thanks to restaurateur Russell Salvatore, who purchased the remaining tickets.
Sunday's 1 p.m. game will air on Channel 4.
Salvatore plans to distribute the tickets to various military and local youth groups, according to a press release from the Bills.
"This is a Christmas present to the community, and I wish everyone in Buffalo a happy holidays," said Salvatore, the owner of Russell's Steaks, Chops & More in Williamsville.
