A total of 44 tickets were issued Sunday following the Buffalo Bills game, New York State Police reported Monday.

The tickets were given for a variety of traffic and vehicle infractions. State troopers were conducting a DWI saturation detail in Orchard Park, meaning the number of troopers in the area was increased so to better watch for drunk drivers.

Troopers from the state Thurway, Boston, Clarence and Buffalo participated. The Bills lost to the New England Patriots, 23-21.
