The Buffalo Bills are starting to get national attention from the NFL after their impressive 9-3 run this season. After their dominant performance over the Dallas Cowboys, the Bills were recognized by the football world. Throughout the last couple hours, there were rumors about how the Bills could have one of the games flexed in the next coming weeks. Well that rumor was confirmed.
During the New England Patriots vs Houston Texans game, the commentators made the announcement that the Bills/Steelers Week 15 game will be moved from 1:00 on CBS to 8:20pm on NBC on national television. ESPN’s own Adam Schefter was also one of the first ones to report the news.
Bills-Steelers flexed to SNF in Week 15.

This will be the Bills second national television game this year, with their first one being on Thanksgiving against the Cowboys.
Both the Bills and the Steelers are in contention for a wild card spot. With the Bills having a two game lead over the Steelers for the fifth seed, this could make for a great matchup. Next Sunday, the Bills will host the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Arizona to take on Kyler Murray and the Cardinals.
If the scenario of Buffalo losing and Pittsburgh winning plays out next week, the battle between the Bills and the Steelers will be a fight for the fifth seed. With both teams being a surprise to the NFL, there should be no surprise that this game was made to be primetime show.
The Bills have taken their schedule by the horns and have paved their way to nine wins with four games remaining. The Steelers have gone through much adversity through drama and injuries and are still a 7-5 team going into next week. This will be a must-watch game for not just the two fanbases but for the AFC as well for the teams competing for the playoffs.
