The NFL will be breaking new ground when they broadcast the NFL London’s Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars game on digital platforms only.

In yet another interesting experiment for the NFL through its NFL London series, the league will be streaming the Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars game worldwide on digital platforms, and not on television.
The game, which is scheduled to take place on October 25, 2015 at 9:30 AM EST, will be available on local Buffalo and Jacksonville TV stations, but for the rest of America – which proved to have a hunger for AM football last season in the Atlanta Falcons/Detroit Lions game – will only be able to watch it through a currently-unspecified streaming provider, according to the Florida Times-Union.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the game will not be available on the ever-popular NFL Sunday Ticket.

The Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars game will feature the NFL’s most bombastic head coach – Bills coach Rex Ryan – pitting his top notch defensive mind against one of the worst offenses in recent history with the Jaguars. The Jaguars, however, have former Bills head coach Doug Marrone as their assistant offensive coach – Marrone’s decision to opt out of his contract with the Bills enabled the team to hire Ryan in the 2015 offseason.
The two teams are each in the midst of the longest playoff droughts in the NFL – the Jaguars have not made the post-season since 2007 while the Bills have not made the postseason in this century (their last playoff appearance was 1999).
