As you would expect for a match-up featuring two teams squarely out of the playoff race, CBS’s telecast of the Bills and Jets will once again be relegated to fans living in the Buffalo and New York/New Jersey primary and secondary television markets.
The No. 6 broadcasting team of Spero Dedes (play-by-play) and Adam Archuleta (analyst) will handle the Bills/Jets clash.
The areas that can see the game are highlighted in orange (map courtesy of 506sports):
The national CBS audience for Sunday’s early games is divided between the Baltimore Ravens at the Kansas City Chiefs (red), the New England Patriots at the Miami Dolphins (purple), and Indianapolis Colts at the Houston Texans (yellow).
This is the 117th meeting all-time between these teams. Buffalo leads the all-time series 62-54, including a 41-10 trouncing in Week 10 at MetLife Stadium.
When these two teams squared off last, Buffalo rushed for a season-best 212 yards, led by LeSean McCoy (113 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries). Robert Foster finished with three catches for 105 yards, becoming the first Bill to eclipse 100 receiving yards since Deonte Thompson on Oct. 22, 2017 vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fellow wide receiver Zay Jones set career-highs in catches (eight) and yards (93), and the Bills, who had scored 33 points during a four-game slide heading into the contest, nearly surpassed that output by halftime.
A win on Sunday would give the Bills the season sweep of the Jets for first time since the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
