The game will be broadcast on CBS locally. The game between the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens will also remain at 1 p.m., while the scheduling for the Week 18 Bills vs Dolphins game, where the AFC East title may be decided, is still to be announced. Despite the possibility, the NFL decided not to shift the Dolphins-Ravens game to the later 4:25 p.m. slot. Therefore, viewers outside the Bills or New England regions may need the Sunday Ticket to view the December 31 game.
