Cowboys vs Bills preview

The Cowboys are capable of winning big games! They've taken the lead in the NFC East and are the No.2 seed in the conference, but can't afford to get too carried away yet. Their run-in is one of the toughest in the NFL. It begins with a clash at Highmark Stadium today, against a Bills team coming off a statement victory of their own.

The Buffalo defense came up with some big stops last weekend and the team clung on for a precious victory over the Chiefs that keeps their slim postseason hopes just about alive. But Sean McDermott's men know that they still might have to win out to stand a chance of hauling themselves into the playoff picture.

They're at the bottom of a six-way tie with the Steelers, Colts, Texans, Broncos and Bengals for the last two spots in the AFC, and both Denver and Cincinnati hold the head-to-head tiebreakers over them.

The Cowboys are on a superb run of seven victories from eight, the latest a brutal beatdown of the previously high-flying Eagles that's done wonders for both Dak Prescott's MVP and Dallas' Super Bowl credentials. However, only two of those games were on the road, and Mike McCarthy's men are 3-3 away from the AT&T this season. 

On their day the Bills can beat anyone, but there's no telling which version will show up on any given Sunday. Follow our guide on how to watch Cowboys vs Bills wherever you are and live stream NFL games all season.

Cowboys vs Bills live stream: watch in the US without cable


NFL fans can watch Cowboys vs Bills on Fox in the US, with kick-off set for 4.25pm ET / 1.25pm PT on Sunday.

How to watch Cowboys vs Bills without cable:

Sling TV is an OTT service that's especially good for NFL fans.

The Sling Blue package offers local Fox and NBC channels in most major markets, as well as NFL Network, thereby covering a large number of NFL games including both primetime and local broadcasts. The usual cost is $45 a month, but if you're new to the service you can get a discount on your first month.

An extra $15 a month for the combined Sling Blue + Orange bundle adds access to ESPN 1, 2 and 3 to your NFL viewing arsenal - as well as a raft of other premium channels.

A costlier but even more thorough alternative is FuboTV, which includes Fox, CBS, NBC, ESPN, ESPN 2, ABC and NFL Network – all the TV channels you need to tune into the NFL this season. 

Prices start at $74.99 a month but new users get $20 off their first month.

If you subscribe to Sling TV, FuboTV, or any other US streaming service and find yourself unable to access coverage because you're out of the country, consider using a VPN as outlined below - we rate ExpressVPN as the best of the best.

How to watch Cowboys vs Bills from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Cowboys vs Bills in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home.

You can get around these digital borders by using one of the best VPNs, which can also offer robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're really easy to use too.
