For some reason, word seems to have gotten out that the Redskins-Bills game telecast has been blacked out in the D. C. area. There may be some confusion because the game was blacked out in Buffalo and it's not on NBC 4, as the rest of the preseason games will be, because of the Olympics.
Here is the press release from the Redskins to help you find the game:
