The Buffalo Bills Daily Roundup brings you all the news you need to know. Today’s stories include the team having their Week 15 game moved to Sunday Night Football
They made a lot of noise on Thanksgiving Day, so the league wants them on the national stage once again. After beating Dallas in their own stadium, the Buffalo Bills will now be flexed to prime-time in Week 15.
Again Buffalo will be on the road for that one as they travel to the Steel City to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers. Currently, the Bills are the fifth seed in the AFC and the Steelers are the sixth.
That could make this an interesting game as each team is doing all they can to stay in the picture and avoid letting any of the teams right behind them sneak in.
The story about the flexed game and more can be found in today’s Buffalo Bills Daily Roundup.

“After introducing itself to much of America with a convincing victory over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day, the Bills get another opportunity to make a national statement against the Steelers on Dec. 15.”
At 9-3, this team is for real and the world is about to see another example of that as they will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in prime-time on Sunday, Dec. 15.
“It’s tough. There are not a lot of guys on rosters around the NFL that can mimic what Lamar does,” coach Sean McDermott said Monday. “If you have them, they are probably starting. There’s a fine line there. We’ll do the best we can. That’s one thing I know, we’ll do the best we can. We’ll see.
Lamar Jackson has been phenomenal this season and is on the shortlist for league MVP. There’s not any player who can really imitate him in practice because he’s deadly with his legs but can still destroy a team with his arm as well. This will be quite the test for the Bills defense and the game will be decided based on whether or not they can limit Jackson.
“(Jackson is) Very unique; very talented player,” McDermott said Monday from the Bills’ practice facility. “I don’t think there’s been a defense that’s cracked the code to this point, so to speak. … We’ve got some thoughts (on how we’ll prepare for him) but we’ve got a little more time to go through it. We may have to use, put a guy here, one guy there and one guy there, and just say go. He’s just so fast.”
Another article talking about how the Bills will prepare for Lamar Jackson and this one is pretty interesting. Sean McDermott doesn’t name any players but he kind of hints at three different ones. There’s probably no ‘right way’ to go about it but you can bet McDermott will do all he can to be prepared.
They don’t control their own destiny just yet, but Buffalo is still alive in the AFC East race following the Patriots loss to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 13.
Micah Hyde went on the Jim Rome Show and talked about how much his team loves Josh Allen. Hyde says they “ride and die” with him and that he’s got what it takes to be one of the best in the league under center.
