The Bills remain as the fifth seed in the AFC playoff race and are looking to rebound from a disappointing 19-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, the Dolphins enter on a surprising two-game winning streak after opening the season with seven consecutive losses.
The contest will be the featured national broadcast among the early games only for fans living in the Bills’ and Dolphins’ primary markets. This includes nearly all of New York state (excluding the New York City market), the northwestern portion of Pennsylvania (including Erie), and south Florida.
CBS’ No. 6 broadcasting team of Spero Dedes (play-by-play) and Adam Archuleta (analyst) will handle the Bills/Dolphins game.

The Dolphins lead the series 61-49-1, with Buffalo prevailing 31-21 on Oct. 20, 2019. Buffalo trailed 14-9 heading into the fourth quarter of that Week 7 contest, but Josh Allen connected on touchdown tosses to John Brown (20 yards) and Cole Beasley (three yards), and Micah Hyde returned an onside kick attempt 45 yards to seal the win.
