ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have sold more season tickets than at any time in their 55-year history.

The team said Monday that 57,500 season tickets have been purchased, beating the previous record of 57,132 set in 1992 - when the Bills were going to Super Bowls. Buffalo has a 15-year playoff drought going, the longest current streak in the NFL.

Last season, the Bills sold 47,482 season tickets.

With new coach Rex Ryan and such additions as running back LeSean McCoy and receiver Percy Harvin, there apparently is Bills fever in western New York.

New owner Terry Pegula says the organization has been “humbled by the fans and their outpouring of emotion when they learned this team would remain in Buffalo.”

Limited individual game tickets remain only for the season-ending game against the Jets, Ryan’s former team.
