When the Buffalo Bills (9-7) travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars (10-6) at 1:05 p.m. Sunday in an AFC Wild Card game, CBS’ No. 1 broadcast crew will handle the game as Buffalo plays in its first postseason contest since the 1999 season. Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson will serve as the broadcast team for the showdown between the sixth-seeded Bills and the third-seeded Jaguars, champions of the AFC South.
While Bills fans can feel flattered that CBS is sending its top crew to Jacksonville to broadcast the game at EverBank Field, the Bills/Jaguars game is also the only playoff game being broadcast on CBS this weekend, as the other three Wild Card games will air on NBC, ESPN, and FOX.
Nantz will handle play-by-play responsibilities, and Romo will serve as color commentator. Wolfson, the sideline reporter, tweeted the news about the playoff assignment.
If the Bills are able to knock off the Jaguars, they will draw CBS’ No. 1 team for the Divisional Playoff game next weekend.
This will be the Bills fourth time having Nantz, Romo, and Wolfson as the broadcast team. Unfortunately for Buffalo fans, the Bills are 0-3 this year with that team calling their games, falling to the New York Jets 34-21 on Thursday Night Football (Week 9), and losing both games to the New England Patriots (23-3 in Week 13 and 37-16 in Week 16).
