of course you could have googled this like I just did but the answer is yes


Time Warner Cable wonít televise Eagles-Bills NFL game on Sunday

The Buffalo Billsí NFL home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday afternoon will not be made available to local Time Warner Cable customers.

The game at Ralph Wilson Stadium is sold out and is not subject to NFL blackout rules, but according to the Oneida County programming schedule listed on the Time Warner Web site, the Seattle Seahawks at the New York Giants game will instead be shown at 1 p.m. on WFXV Channel 3.

At the same time on WTVH Channel 5, the Tennessee Titans at the Pittsburgh Steelers game will also be aired.

Time Warner officials were unavailable to discuss the programming schedule.

The Bills come into the game with a 3-1 overall record, while the Eagles, led by Michael Vick, are 1-3 overall on the season.

It will be the first Bills game not televised by Time Warner this season

I could not find it on the Bills' website. Tell me how you found the info you provided so next time I won't have to ask. Thanks.

It's sad a 3-1 team can't sell out facing a team like the Eagles with one of the NFL's premier players Mike Vick coming to town. Another showing that the economy blows and people can't afford stuff like this. And it is a big stadium that doesn't help. Go to a tavern with the NFL ticket if you want to watch the game.

if McNabb was still with the Beagles, you'd be DAMN sure Fox68 would carry the game. I'm still shocked we aren't being force-fed Viking games on Sunday!

We get the NY market games which usually means the Giants on FOX and if Buffalo doesn't sell out you get the next closest regional game. This stuff isn't done at random.

It wasn't shown on Directv, but I was told it did air on channel 8 on cable. Maybe I can catch the game on NFL Replay. Sounded as tho it was a good game to have seen.
