With the Buffalo Bills on their bye, members of the BillsMafia could get work done around their house, pay attention to their spouse and children, pay bills, read a book, or a number of other tasks. What’s more likely, however, is that they will plop down in front of a TV screen or screens and watch games without sweating the outcome. Snacks and beverages are personal preference.
With that in mind, we wanted to take a look at what games are on TV in your neck of the woods and just ask the simple question: What game are you watching? To help, we’ve added the broadcast maps from 506Sports.com so you can see what’s over the air locally for you.
To make things a little more interesting, here’s a link to our partner, DraftKings, to handle all your betting options. Hey, some people like having skin in the game and, with the Bills out, this is the next best thing.

While the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans might be the more important matchup for Bills’ fans at 1:00 PM Eastern, Buffalo is getting the AFC North tilt featuring the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. Both games are good matchups and Baltimore is the top seed in the AFC right now.
In Rochester, they’ll instead get the New York Jets vs New England Patriots. SUNY Cortland hosted the Jets’ training camp for years and there are some Jets fans upstate, I guess.
In the afternoon slot, Bills fans don’t have much in the way of rooting interests, but Tom Brady will be on the television in most of the country.
For FOX, they only have one game this week. No marquee games on the slate make it a perfect time for Joe Buck and Troy Aikman to have the week off for Buck’s baseball duties. Western New York is split, once again, with Buffalo getting the Las Vegas Raiders vs the Philadelphia Eagles while Rochester gets the New York Giants. The same Upstate New York connection exists with the Giants as does with the Jets, so this one makes a bit of sense, too.
