Buffalo had a disappointing loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, which included new injuries for Sammy Watkins and Kyle Williams. Now the team is making a trip across the Atlantic for an away game, hoping for a rebound against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This game will feature an odd reunion of the Bills roster and former head coach Doug Marrone, who landed as the Jaguars' offensive line coach after voiding his Bills contract. Former offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will also be there, now working as Jacksonville's quarterback coach. In a fitting turn of events, backup quarterback EJ Manuel, who was benched by Marrone, has already been announced as the team's starter as Tyrod Taylor works back from his MCL sprain. For what it's worth, Manuel is downplaying the importance of the personal connection to this week's game.
This week's game will be an historic one for European Bills fans, many of whom are excited to be seeing their first ever Bills game in person. It's also the first regular season game to be streamed officially over the internet, thanks to an NFL partnership with Yahoo.com. It being a London game, it starts early, so check the times and broadcast info and start that tailgating party a few hours earlier! Here's the info you need to know for watching this week's game.
