For the first time this year, the Buffalo Bills (3-0) will be the featured national telecast when the Bills welcome the New England Patriots (3-0) to New Era Field for a 1 p.m. clash Sunday afternoon.
The majority of CBS’ national television audience will be tuned in as the Bills try and knock off the Patriots in one of two Week 4 match-ups featuring undefeated teams—the Detroit Lions at 2-0-1 host the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs in the other showdown of unbeatens.
CBS’ No. 2 broadcasting team of Ian Eagle (play-by-play), Dan Fouts (analyst), and Evan Washburn (sideline reporter) will handle the Bills/Patriots game, which for the first time since Week 6 of the 2014 season has first place in the AFC East on the line.

This will be the 119th meeting all-time between Buffalo and New England, with the Patriots holding a comfortable 74-43-1 lead in the series. New England swept the season series in 2018, prevailing by a score of 25-6 in a Monday Night showdown in Buffalo, and 24-12 in Foxboro.
