Sunday Ticket moves to Monday for snow-bound Buffalo Bills game
| 24 November 2014
Buffalo, NY's Ralph Wilson football stadium was buried under the record-breaking seven-foot snowfall that Western New York city received this week ó but out-of-market and home fans alike will still be able to check out the NFL game.
DirecTV's Sunday Ticket premium package is deviating from its nomenclature by adding the game, rescheduled to 24 November, to its line-up, which is a hotly anticipated match-up between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. Buffalo is still under a sea of frozen sludge, so the game will be played at Ford Field in Detroit, kicking off at 7pm ET.
The match-up will also be available via CBS in local markets, which has the AFC package rights for the season. The broadcaster is pre-empting its regular Monday line-up for the game in New York (WCBS); Buffalo (WIVB); Syracuse (WTVH); Rochester (WROC); Albany (WRGB); Elmira (EENY); Binghamton; (WBNG); Watertown (WWNY); and Erie (WSEE).
The game is going up against standard Monday Night Football action: ESPN will be showing the Baltimore Ravens vs. New Orleans Saints game, which kicks off at 8.30pm ET
