NFL Schedule: Giants To Play Redskins On Sept. 11, While Jets Play Host To Cowboys
Published April 20, 2011
NORTHERN EXPOSURE: In Toronto, Chris Zelkovich notes the Bills will host the Redskins on Oct. 30 at Rogers Centre in Toronto in the latest edition of the Bills Toronto Series, which "has been a financial success for the Bills, but hasn't been an on-field hit." The game "will be the fourth in the Bills' Toronto series, all of them losses." Based on last year's standings, the matchup "doesn't look all that thrilling." The Redskins "finished with a 6-10 record and were at the bottom of their division," while the Bills "were also last in their division with a 4-12 record." Zelkovich notes the game "will come two days after the Toronto Argonauts play a Canadian Football League game in Winnipeg." Last year, the Bills' game against the Bears was "played the same day the Argos took on the Alouettes in Montreal" (TORONTO STAR, 4/20). In Toronto, Mike Ganter reports "actual ticket sales and prices will not be announced until the work stoppage is resolved," though fans "looking to reserve a seat for the game can do so by ... putting down a refundable $25 deposit." Fans "who have already purchased tickets for the game through Series packages will receive a full refund if the game is not played" (TORONTO SUN, 4/20).
