Dolphins Buy Tickets (Again), Avoid Blackout

Timothy T. Ludwig-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Dolphins will extend their regular-season home game blackout avoidance streak to 117 straight games this week after the team bought the remaining tickets to ensure a "sellout." The Dolphins play their AFC East rivals, the Buffalo Bills, this Sunday.

The Miami Dolphins have sold out every regular season home game since 1998, a streak that will reach 117 straight games this Sunday when they host the Buffalo Bills. Of course, not every "sellout" is equal.

For the seventh time in eight home games this year, the team has had to buy tickets to ensure the game would be broadcast to the local Miami market. A team can buy tickets at $0.34 on the dollar.

Throughout the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Miami owner Stephen Ross and several local area sponsors have had to buy tickets to ensure the team would comply with NFL requirements to allow the Dolphins to remain on local television each week.

This week's game will be televised on CBS, with kickoff at 1:00pm Eastern.
