MIAMI (AP) -- Tim Tebow's popularity hasn't been enough for the winless Miami Dolphins to sell out Sunday's game, so they've agreed to buy any remaining tickets to avert a television blackout in South Florida.

Those tickets will be given to season-ticket holders. The Dolphins also bought all unsold tickets for their most recent home game.

Tebow returns to Florida to make his first start of the season for the Denver Broncos. Since the decision to start him was announced last week, more than 10,000 tickets have been sold.

Dolphins attendance has declined with the franchise's recent fortunes, but Miami has avoided any blackouts since the start of the 2001 season.
