Expect another crowd of about 40,000 for Bills in Toronto VI.

And for the second consecutive year, that’s a real number. Freebies-free.

The Buffalo Bills (4-7) play host to the Atlanta Falcons (2-9) Sunday at 4 p.m. EST under the winter-shielding roof of the Rogers Centre (Sportsnet, Citytv).

As so many Torontonians suspected, the Rogers Centre was papered up to its retractable roof for the first four games in the annual series to make up for sales shortfalls owing to ridiculously priced tickets.

But starting last year, Rogers Media Inc. -- which pays the Bills for the right to relocate the team once a year -- not only further slashed ticket prices, but also stopped giving away tickets just to put bums in empty blue seats.
