CBS loses Bills-Texans broadcast during game due to technical difficulties
The Houston Texans offense against the Buffalo Bills has been difficult to watch. Even the CBS show came out.
The network encountered technical difficulties inside Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park towards the end of the third quarter and were unable to continue broadcasting the game with audio from play-by-play announcer Beth Mowins and analyst Tiki Barber.
CBS was forced to switch to audio commentary from its “NFL Today” team of James Brown, Boomer Esiason, Phil Simms and Nate Burleson of Studio 43 at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City.
