Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings: television broadcast map, announcers

New, comments

Somehow, this game drew CBS’ No. 1 broadcast team!

For the Buffalo Bills (0-2), a trip north to face the reigning NFC North champion Minnesota Vikings (1-0-1) certainly isn’t the ideal remedy to bring Buffalo’s 2018 season back on track.

But after showing enough glimpses of his potential in Week 2’s 31-20 home loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, rookie quarterback Josh Allen will have his first chance to showcase his prolific arm and athleticism before a national audience.

Sunday’s 1 p.m. Eastern game between the Bills and Vikings marks the first time Allen and the Bills will take center stage on a national scale, with CBS’ No. 1 broadcast team of Jim Nantz and Tono Romo handling the broadcasting duties.

Thanks to 506sports.com, we’re able to see what parts of the country will be able to watch the Bills this weekend, and almost all of New York State plus portions of the northeast and much of the upper midwest states will have Buffalo vs. Minnesota as your featured national telecast.

The areas that can see Buffalo are highlighted in red.

A majority of America’s heartland and the Baltimore market will see the Denver Broncos travel to play the Baltimore Ravens (in orange). The rest of the 1 p.m. coverage includes the Oakland Raiders traveling to face the Miami Dolphins (in green), the Cincinnati Bengals traveling to face the Carolina Panthers (in yellow), and the Tennessee Titans traveling to play the Jacksonville Jaguars (in teal).

The last time Buffalo traveled to play the Vikings, the Bills suffered a 38-14 defeat on Dec. 5, 2010. The last time these two teams squared off, Uncle Rico Kyle Orton connected on a two-yard fade pass to Sammy Watkins with one second remaining to lift Buffalo to a 17-16 win on Oct. 19, 2014.
