The Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to face off on Sunday in a big Week 5 game in the 2017 NFL regular season. The game has a scheduled start time of 1 p.m. ET and takes place from the Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The game can be watched on TV on the CBS network, or online through live stream (details below).
These two teams have had opposite fortunes through the opening month of the season, with the Buffalo Bills pushing on with a 3-1 record to top the AFC East.
Meanwhile, the Cincinnati Bengals have struggled badly and come into Week 5 on 1-3 and are above only the lowly Cleveland Browns in the AFC North.
The pressure is on the Bills to win today following the New England Patriots victory earlier this week, which was a third victory for them, placing them on 3-2. That means a loss here today for the Bills would leave them tied with the Patriots. After their impressive start to the season, they will want to ensure they keep their noses in front of their fierce division rivals, so a win today is a must for them.
For the Bills, quarterback Tyrod Taylor has completed 65 of 99 attempts for 744 yards and 5 touchdowns so far this season.
Earlier this week on NFL Thursday Night Football, the New England Patriots won a tight game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get themselves back to a winning record.
Things were close, however, and the Buccaneers were pushing in the fourth, but ultimately came up short to ensure the Patriots would claim a confidence boosting road win and move to 3-2.
The game came down to the final play, but once the dust settles the Patriots will be satisfied as a win is a win, and the game also saw quarterback Tom Brady tie Peyton Manning and Brett Favre for the most season wins by a quarterback with 186 victories.
Brady had a tough night, but still came up with some good stats. Despite throwing an interception, and losing a fumble, as well as getting hit all night, he managed to complete 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards and a touchdown.
As for the Buccaneers they will be disappointed having fallen just short of completing their comeback. Had quarterback Jameis Winston's final pass to OJ Howard been on target they would have stolen the win from the Patriots. Winston finished the game with 334 yards, completing 26 throws from 46 attempts.
The Buccaneers will also be looking at kicker Nick Folk, who missed three field goals, as a reason they came up short.
