The Bills (7-5) are coming off a wild 14-10 Monday night loss at the hands of the Patriots. A game where Buffalo’s defense saw just three passes and 46 run plays much thanks to 20 m.p.h. winds at Highmark Stadium. The Bills allowed 222 yards on the ground including a 64 yard touchdown run by Damien Harris that opened the scoring. 

While the Pats stuck to the ground game, Josh Allen and the Bills tried to throw the ball despite the weather conditions. Allen completed just 15-of-his-30 passes for a season low completion percentage and passing yards total.

The Buccaneers (9-3) enter this game going for their second four-game winning streak of the season. Last week Tom Brady threw for 368 yards and four touchdowns as they beat the Falcons 30-17. Brady now leads all quarterbacks in passing yards (3,771) and touchdowns (34) and said despite their 9-win record and shoe-in for a postseason birth, this game against the Bills is the “biggest game of the season.”

The Bucs and Bills offer an interesting matchup in that it will be the best from opposite ends of the points spectrum. The Bills have the second-best defense in the league, allowing just 16.3 points-per-game, while the Bucs score the most points in the league on average with 31.4 points-per-game. The whole “defense wins championships” mantra will be put to the test in this one.

The Buccaneers are 3.5-point favorites against the Bills. The over/under is 53. Brady is 32-3 all- time against the Bills. That's his highest win total against any team he's faced in his 22 seasons.

Bills vs Buccaneers live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Bills vs Buccaneers live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 4:25 p.m. ET / 1:25 a.m. PT today (Dec. 12)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
