AUSTIN, Texas (AP) If you want to know why the Buffalo Sabres are a must-see for NFL fans this year, the answer is in their attendance record.
The Sabres were the NFL’s second-most-lucrative franchise in 2016-17.
Their attendance was up 8 percent from last year.
That’s a lot of people who were paying $2,000 to see a team that only had three games on television, and it’s a much higher price tag than the NFL average of $2.2 million.
That’s because the Bills are an NFL team, and that means they get to sell tickets in a way that other teams don’t.
So, when you’re sitting in a stadium with 15,000 people in the seats and the stadium is filling up, there’s a good chance you’re not going to have a good view of the action on TV.
The NFL’s average NFL attendance was just 6,400.
The Bills were at 6,638, an increase of 13 percent.
But, unlike the NFL, the Bills have more tickets than most teams.
The Buffalo Bills had 8,848, an average of 10 percent more than the average NFL team.
The Bills averaged more than 10,000 fans per game, a record for the NFL.
Last season, the Philadelphia Eagles averaged 3,858.
The Cleveland Browns averaged 3 of 4, and the Jacksonville Jaguars averaged 1 of 2.
The Buffalo Bills were a huge draw this year.
But that’s not the only reason they drew so many people.
They were the only NFL team to average more than 2,000 tickets per game.
They also averaged more tickets per fan than all other NFL teams combined.
That puts them second only to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs averaged 2,897, which is the fourth-highest in the NFL this year at 2,909.
The average attendance in 2017-18 for the Buffalo football team was 6,865.
That was the fourth highest in the league.
That makes the Bills one of just six NFL teams to average over 6,000 per game this year for at least two seasons.
They are the only one of the six to average at least 6,800.
