Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers Week 15 Broadcast Card


The Buffalo Bills (7-6) started the season with Super Bowl aspirations, and while those dreams are always possible, the reality of the situation is that the Bills need to start racking up wins to stay in the hunt for a place in the playoffs.

Buffalo finds itself in this precarious position after dropping back-to-back decisions against the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in weeks 14 and 15. Yes, the Bills are still in possession of the last Wild Card spot in the AFC, but Buffalo is one of five teams with a 7-6 record with four regular season games remaining.

Buffalo’s quest begins with Sunday’s home game at 1 p.m. EST against the Carolina Panthers (5-8), a team the Bills and head coach Sean McDermott know very well since McDermott spent six years as Carolina’s defensive coordinator before becoming Buffalo’s head coach ahead of the 2017 season.

Buffalo’s clash with the Panthers will be FOX’s first broadcast for fans in the Buffalo and Carolina markets, as well as pockets of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Vermont and Wyoming. (where Josh Allen played collegiately).
