The NFL blackout rule has been lifted, but don't get too excited yet. The Federal Communications Commission voted today to lift the more than 40-year-old ban on broadcasting games locally that do not sell out, but the league still has to change its' policy.

The Buffalo Bills have announced that quarterback Kyle Orton will get the start in Detroit next Sunday, in place of EJ Manuel, who will assume the backup role.

The Buffalo Bills visit the Houston Texans Sunday, with both teams sporting 2-1 records. As Matt Sabuda points out in WBFO's "Beyond the Playbook," some other remarkable connections exist, including an unusually close relationship between the head coaches.
