On Saturday, Jan. 9 at 1:05 pm on CBS, the Buffalo Bills will host the Indianapolis Colts at Bills Stadium during the Wild Card weekend. With a 56-26 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Buffalo clinched the No. 2 seed. After coming out on the wrong end of a tiebreaker with Tennessee, Indianapolis concluded with the No. 7 seed.
It will be the Bills and Colts’ first-ever playoff matchup.
As Bills quarterback Frank Reich orchestrated a 32-point comeback to lead Buffalo to a 41-38 overtime win, the match was completed on the 28th anniversary of the 1993 Wild Card game between the Bills and the Houston Oilers. Reich is the head coach of the Colts now.
The Bills announced an agreement with the State of New York to allow 6,772 fans to enter the wild-card game at Bills Stadium, which will be the first playoff contest held since 1996 in Buffalo. Tickets that were given to representatives of Season Ticket are sold out.
The state of New York allows 6,772 fans to play the Bills’ first home playoff game in 24 seasons. Tickets are sold out already. They were available for purchase for season ticket holders who chose to buy playoff tickets based on seniority earlier this year. Tickets were not open to the public at large.
A negative coronavirus test leading up to the game would require fans to obtain it. Two to three days prior to the game, the assessments will take place at Bills Stadium and cost $63, which is part of the ticket purchase. At all times, fans are expected to wear face masks and social distancing laws will be enforced.
If the Bills advance to host a Divisional Round game, fans who attended the Wild-Card round won’t be eligible to purchase tickets.
