NFL: triple program on RDS2 this Sunday, for the 11th week of activities

RDS2 and will broadcast three NFL games starting at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon. You can also see all the action in the NFL with NFL Red Zone.

Bills and Browns on neutral ground (1 p.m.)

Due to the storm expected in the Buffalo area, Sunday afternoon’s matchup between the Bills and the Cleveland Browns will be played on neutral ground, in Detroit.

It’s the first time since 2014 that a local Bills game (6-3) has to be played anywhere other than Highmark Stadium.

The Browns’ (3-6) hopes of making the playoffs were dimmed even further with the loss to another American East Division club, the Miami Dolphins, last week.

It will be quarterback Jacoby Brissett’s second-to-last start before Deshaun Watson returns to play after serving Game 10 of his 11-game suspension.

On the side of the Bills, head coach Sean McDermott will try to sign a first victory against Cleveland since taking office in 2017.

This is the only opponent of the American that McDermott has never defeated.

Buffalo will seek to drive away the bad memory of its end of the game against the Minnesota Vikings. Involved in one of the most spectacular duels of the season, the Bills finally lost 33 to 30.

The Vikings go for an 8e right now (4:25 p.m.)

Hours later in Minneapolis, the Vikings will look to extend their seven-game winning streak by hosting the Dallas Cowboys.

From an individual standpoint, it will be an opportunity for star receiver Justin Jefferson to edge out Randy Moss for the most receiving yards by an NFL player in his first three seasons.

Jefferson needs 88 yards, at his 43e game, to edge Moss, who totaled 4,163 yards in his first three campaigns.

Dallas (6-3) has slowed the pace somewhat in a most formidable NFC East division.

Last week, Mike McCarthy’s squad lost 31-28 to the Green Bay Packers.

The Cowboys have allowed over 200 rushing yards in two straight games. The only time this had happened in franchise history was in the 1960 season as an expansion club.

During its next three outings, Dallas will have the mandate to stop Dalvin Cook, Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Taylor in quick succession.

Mahomes and Herbert with less ammo? (8:20 p.m.)

We are generally entitled to expect a duel of passers when Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert clash.

Nothing is less certain, however, given the number of injuries the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers approach their second game of the season on Sunday night.

The Chiefs (7-2) will be without Mecole Herdman, and in all likelihood JuJu Smith-Schuster as well.

As for the Chargers (5-4), questions remain about the availability of Keenan Allen – who has only played two games this season – as well as Mike Williams, who has missed the last two weeks of activity.

For Los Angeles, which lost the first meeting between the division rivals in September, another loss would mean it will be very difficult to dislodge Kansas City at the top of the AFC West.

“We don’t see this game as an opportunity to take a three-game lead, or whatever. We are focused on delivering a good performance on Sunday,” said Mahomes.

Since 2019, the Chiefs have posted a stellar 26-3 record in regular season games played in November or later.
