The Buffalo Bills (1-2) shocked many national experts when they traveled to Minneapolis and handed the reigning NFC North champion Minnesota Vikings a 27-6 setback Sunday afternoon.
That game was played on CBS before much of the country, and for Sunday’s 1 p.m. Eastern game between the Bills and the Green Bay Packers (1-1-1), Buffalo will once again be playing before a large national audience.
Buffalo’s Week 4 trip to historic Lambeau Field marks the second straight matchup between the Bills and an NFC North opponent. CBS’ No. 2 broadcasting team of Ian Eagle (play-by-play), Dan Fouts (analyst), and Evan Washburn (sideline reporter) will handle 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. Almost all of New York state, plus portions of Pennsylvania, much of the upper midwest, and pockets of California will have Buffalo vs. Green Bay as your featured national telecast.
The areas that can see Buffalo are highlighted in red.
A majority of America’s heartland and the western states, along with the New England area and the state of Florida, will see the Miami Dolphins travel to play the New England Patriots (in green). The rest of the 1 p.m. coverage includes the Cincinnati Bengals traveling to play the Atlanta Falcons (in purple), and the Houston Texans traveling to face the Indianapolis Colts (in yellow).
The last time the Bills traveled to Lambeau, it wasn’t pretty. Behind a pair of Aaron Rodgers touchdown passes and a pair of Trent Edwards interceptions, Green Bay throttled Buffalo 34-7 on Sept. 19, 2010.
In that game, the Packers led only 13-7 at halftime, but Rodgers tossed a pair of TDs and added a nine-yard touchdown run to send Buffalo to an 0-2 start to the season.
