Allotted Tickets For Bills' Playoff Opener Already Gone

The Buffalo Bills will be opening the AFC playoffs in front of a packed house. Or at least as packed as things get these days.

Less than 24 hours after the state of New York announced that the Bills could allow 6,700 fans at their first playoff game, the game was sold out. Per the Bills, tickets went to 6,200 season-ticket holders, with the other 500 going to guests of team employees and players.

"Tickets are not transferrable, and entry to the stadium requires the ticket, a photo ID and proof of a negative COVID-19 test," wrote Michael David Smith of PFT. "Contact tracing will be conducted after the game if anyone who attends is later identified as having tested positive in the days following the game. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has described the Bills’ playoff game as a test to see how well the state can handle large events."

Quarterback Josh Allen and the Bills (12-3) have already clinched the AFC East entering Sunday's game vs. the Miami Dolphins (10-5). They can finish with the No. 2 seed in the conference with a win.
