The Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins are set to square off for a third time this NFL season on Sunday afternoon at Highmark Stadium.
For the fourth consecutive season, the second longest active streak in the NFL, the Buffalo Bills are heading to the playoffs. This year’s team tied a franchise record in wins and finished the regular season at 13-3, good for the No. 2 seed in the AFC.
The Bills are set to open up the postseason on Sunday afternoon against the No. 7 seed Miami Dolphins, who secured the AFC’s final playoff spot with an 11-6 victory over the New York Jets this past Sunday afternoon.
The AFC East rivals competed against one another twice in the regular season. The Dolphins won the first game at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami by a score of 21-19 back in Week 3, but the Bills took round two at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park by a score of 32-29 back in Week 15.
The Bills vs. Dolphins game is the only Wild Card game that is set to be shown on CBS.
As a result, the CBS “Lead Team” is set to be on hand on Sunday afternoon, with Jim Nantz in the broadcast booth serving as the play-by-play announcer and Tony Romo alongside as an analyst. The game is scheduled to get underway at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Both of the other two AFC Wild Card games are set to be shown on NBC, with one scheduled for Saturday night at 8:15 p.m. ET (No. 5 seed Los Angeles Chargers vs. No. 4 seed Jacksonville Jaguars) and the other scheduled for Sunday night at the same time (No. 6 seed Baltimore Ravens vs. No. 3 seed Cincinnati Bengals).
