Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts: broadcast info, advertisers, streaming, radio, television


The Buffalo Bills open their 2022 season NFL pre-season slate at 4:00 a.m. Eastern time on Saturday afternoons, when the Indianapolis Colts come to Highmark Stadium.

The Bills have won their last eight preseason games, spanning nearly 1,450 days. The last time Buffalo lost a preseason game was a 28-16 loss to Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals on August 26, 2018 in a Week 3 pre-season game.

For the second consecutive opening of the pre-season, Pro-Bowl Quarterback Josh Allen will see no action for the Bills, who will most likely roll with a combination of Case Keenum and Matt Barkley at quarterback in the first game of the preseason.

Head coach Sean McDermott said playing time for the rest of Buffalo’s starters will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

On the other side, former Bills QB and current Colts head coach Frank Reich has previously said that his starting quarterback, Matt Ryan, and some of their starters will play “maybe a quarterback, maybe -be a little less”.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch and/or listen to the preseason opener.
