Bills game is lowest-rated in more than 3 years

Not surprisingly, the Buffalo Bills' 47-10 blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints Sunday was the lowest-rated game in more than three years.

The game had a 31.4 rating on WUTV, the local Fox affiliate.

It was the lowest-rated Bills game since the Sept. 7, 2014, season opener against the Chicago Bears, which had a 29.9 rating.

The rating for Sunday's game dropped into the high 20s for the last 45 minutes, with a 26.3 rating at 3:45 p.m.

As bad as the Bills rating may sound, the three-hour game will be by far the highest-rated program of the week in Western New York.

To put things in more perspective, it is very rare for any prime-time entertainment program these days to get a live rating in the high teens.

And the Buffalo Sabres' 2-1 overtime loss to Montreal Saturday night had a 5.5 rating on cable's MSG.
