CBS to feature Bills, Titans game, News 8 at 6 newscast to air early

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP/WKBT) — CBS will air the Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans NFL game at 6 p.m. Tuesday after it was rescheduled due to COVID-19.

A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the Tennessee Titans have no positive tests. That will allow them to host the Buffalo Bills in a rescheduled game Tuesday night between unbeaten teams.

The Bills left for Nashville on Monday night, but the Titans needed another day without a positive test for the game to go forward. The Titans had the NFL’s first COVID-19 outbreak with eight testing positive Sept. 29 when their facility was shut down and reached a total of 24 players and personnel. Tennessee now has gone without a positive test on six of the past nine days.

To allow for the game, the News 8 Now 6 p.m. newscast will air at 5:30 p.m. The CBS Evening News will air on TVW.
