Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals: television broadcast map, announcers

A small portion of the country will get to watch the Bills go for 3-0

The Buffalo Bills (2-0) are one of only four undefeated teams remaining in the AFC through two weeks, while the Cincinnati Bengals (0-2) are one of six AFC teams still searching for their first win of the year.

The Bills welcome the Bengals to New Era Field at 1 p.m. Eastern Sunday for Buffalo’s home opener. While the energy (and optimism) over Buffalo’s first 2-0 start in five years is sky-high in Western New York, the majority of CBS’ national television audience will not get to see Buffalo go for its first 3-0 start since the 2011 season.

The No. 7 broadcasting team of Tom McCarthy (play-by-play) and Jay Feely (analyst) will handle the Bills/Bengals game, which will be the featured national telecast among the early games for fans living in the Bills’ and Bengals’ primary markets.

The areas that can see the game are highlighted in yellow (map courtesy of 506sports):

The majority of the early national CBS audience will see two of the AFC’s undefeated squads square off when the Baltimore Ravens travel to play the Kansas City Chiefs (in red). The other two early games feature the New York Jets at the New England Patriots (in blue), and the Atlanta Falcons at the Indianapolis Colts (green).

This is the 32nd meeting all-time between these teams. The Bills lead the series 16-15, with the Bengals prevailing 20-16 in the last meeting, Oct. 8, 2017. Buffalo’s last win in the series came Nov. 20, 2016, when the Bills held off the Bengals 16-12.
