Bills announce sellouts against Panthers, Ravens

By Jay Skurski

Bills fans will be able to watch the team's next two home games from the comfort of their couch should they so choose.

The team today announced its next two home games, Sunday against Carolina and Sept. 29 against Baltimore, are sellouts and thus will air on local television. Sunday's game against the Panthers will air at 1 p.m. on FOX, with Dick Stockton on play by play and Ronde Barber as the color analyst.

The game against the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens will air on CBS.

The Bills in recent seasons have struggled with having home games blacked out on local TV, especially late in the season. Last year, the final three home games in December -- against Jacksonville, St. Louis and the New York Jets -- did not sell out.

This season's schedule is more favorable for ticket sales, with three home games in September before the weather takes a turn for the worse. The Bills play only one time in Ralph Wilson Stadium, Dec. 22 against Miami, in the final six weeks of the season (one of their "home" games takes place Dec. 1 in Toronto).
