The Colts vs Bills live stream begins today 1:05 p.m. ET / 10:05 a.m. PT Saturday January 9 on CBS

The Colts vs Bills live stream is on, and it features a much different Bills team than we have seen in years. Buffalo boasts a quarterback in the MVP conversation, a league leading wide receiver and an AFC East Championship. And the oddsmakers currently favor the Bills in this NFL live stream by 6 points. 

After missing the playoffs last year, the Bills made one of the biggest splashes leading up to the 2020 season when they sent four draft picks to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for WR Stefon Diggs. The move paid off in a huge way for Buffalo. Diggs went on to lead the NFL in receptions (127) and receiving yards (1,535) while setting franchise records in both categories this season. 

The Bills’ receiver was not alone in rewriting the team’s record books this year. Quarterback Josh Allen threw for the most yards (4,544) and touchdowns (37) in team history, surpassing Hall of Famer Jim Kelly. Overall, Allen finished top 5 in the league in 5 major statistical categories including passer rating (107.3). Both Allen and Diggs will try to help the Bills to their first playoff victory since 1995. Diggs has been dealing with an oblique injury, but told reporters this week, “I’m fine.”

The Colts' Jonathon Taylor finished his dominant rookie year in style last week rushing for 253 yards and two touchdowns in Indy’s playoff clinching win against the Jaguars. Taylor finished the season as the league’s 3rd leading rusher. If the Colts are going to stage an upset Saturday in Buffalo, they will need to give plenty of carries to Taylor who will be facing a bottom-tier Bills run defense that allows 4.6 yards per carry.

As Taylor makes his playoff debut, Colts quarterback, Phillip Rivers will be making his 12th postseason start. In his first year with the Colts, Rivers started every game, posting a passer rating of 97. Rivers is 5-6 in his playoff career.

Sling TV, our other favorite live TV service, won't be enough to help, as its array of NFL game-hosting networks — FOX, ESPN, NBC and NFL Network — lacks CBS and NFL RedZone.

The more comprehensive package comes from fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, ESPN, FOX, NBC and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

It's a case of "you get what you pay for" as Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX, NBC and NFL Network) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.
