Bills vs. Pats to go primetime

The Buffalo Bills will make an encore appearance in prime time. Just six weeks after hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, the NFL announced today that the Bills home game on Nov. 18 against the New England Patriots has been moved from its scheduled 1pm start to a Sunday night prime time kickoff at 8:15pm.

The Bills, who have won three in a row, obviously made for a very compelling matchup with the undefeated Patriots on Sunday Night Football. As a result the originally scheduled Chicago vs. Seattle contest has been bumped from the Sunday night time slot and will now be played at 4:15pm on FOX.

It's the first time a Bills game has been moved under the league's two-year old flex scheduling plan. Instead of being televised by CBS the game will be moving over to NBC.

Buffalo and New England have faced each other on Sunday night before in both the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Both of those games were played in Foxborough.

The Bills are an astounding 5-0 all-time at home on Sunday nights with their last win coming on Sept. 3, 2000 against the Tennessee Titans by a final of 16-13.
