1st back-to-back primetimes for Bills since ’93

Posted by Chris Brown on November 12, 2015 – 6:27 pm

Tonight the Bills open the first of a pair of back-to-back primetime games with the Jets in New York before they face the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in Week 11. The last time Buffalo had back-to-back primetime games was in their final AFC title season of 1993. Here’s how they fared.

In Week 5 Buffalo won a tight game over the New York Giants in Orchard Park on Sunday night football by a score of 17-14. Pete Metzelaars had the game-winning touchdown catch on an eight-yard throw from Jim Kelly in the fourth quarter.

The following week on Monday Night Football the Bills hosted the Houston Oilers and routed them 35-7. Thurman Thomas and Kenny Davis combined for 137 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and Andre Reed had a pair of receiving TDs. Jim Kelly had just 15 completions, but three went for touchdowns in the win as Buffalo improved to 4-1 heading into their bye week.

Are you ready for some football? And some Carrie Underwood?

Underwood will be the new face of the NBC’s Sunday Night Football theme, replacing fellow country superstar Faith Hill after her six-season run.

“I am thrilled to be a part of NBC’s Sunday Night Football and am so honored they asked me,” said Underwood. “I have always loved football season, and it is so exciting to now become part of it every Sunday night.”

Underwood shot to fame after winning American Idol in 2005 and is now a six-time Grammy winner and multi-platinum recording artist. Her version of “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” will make its debut on Sunday September 8th before the first SNF game of the 2013 season between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.

While the Bills don’t currently have a game scheduled for Sunday Night Football, the final six games of the season are subject to the league’s flex scheduling policy and could be moved to primetime and kicked off by Underwood on NBC.
