Many believed Jacksonville’s trip to Seattle last week was a winnable game, as the team were without quarterback Russell Wilson and were just 2-5. But even with Geno Smith under center, it didn’t matter as the Seahawks were off to a 31-7 victory.
The road only gets more complicated this week as one of the best teams in the NFL comes to Jacksonville. The Buffalo Bills are 5-2 and lead the AFC East, and with MVP contender for quarterback Josh Allen, winning this game won’t be easy.
In fact, it’s one of Jacksonville’s toughest clashes all season, and when the team debuts against the Bills at TIAA Bank Field at 1 p.m. Saturday, they’ll do so as the NFL’s biggest underdog. this week. For fans who wish to watch the game locally on CBS, it will air in the orange-brown shaded areas below, by 506sports.
In addition to most of northern Florida, from Jacksonville to Tallahassee, the game will be televised in the southeastern part of Georgia and the southernmost part of South Carolina. It will also air throughout western New York and parts of northern Pennsylvania. Additionally, fans in parts of Wyoming and Nebraska will be able to watch the game, likely due to the fan base Allen developed while studying in Wyoming.
Andrew Catalon and James Lofton will be on call for CBS.
The Jaguars are just 1-6 and are hoping to save something in the second half of this season. But a victory on Sunday is extremely unlikely, and it would represent what would likely be the biggest upheaval of the NFL season.
