Bills tight end Dawson Knox makes a leaping catch against  Dolphins free safety Eric Rowe during the third quarter of last season's Bills-Dolphins s game.

The Buffalo Bills game at 1 p.m. Sunday with Miami carried by Fox affiliate WUTV isn’t exactly drawing the network’s best known NFL announcing team.

But it could be one of the most interesting teams.

Brandon Gaudin, who may be best known as the voice of Madden NFL from EA Sports, will be the play-by-play announcer.

Former NFL star and General Manager Matt Millen is the analyst.

Watch fans as they sing and dance and chant "Bills Mafia" in the parking lot prior to the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021.

Sarah Kustok, who may be best known as the first full-time solo female NBA analyst after the YES network assigned her Brooklyn Nets games, is the sideline reporter. She played basketball collegiately for the DePaul University women’s team.

On another NFL note, the Peyton and Eli Manning show during the Las Vegas Raiders' 33-27 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens as the alternative Monday Night Football was a huge social network hit.

Twitter was abuzz over the Mannings' sense of humor and analysis on a broadcast carried by ESPN2 while the regular MNF crew of Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick worked the regular broadcast on ESPN.

The Manning highlight for Bills fans likely came after ex-Bills receiver Zay Jones caught the winning touchdown from Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in overtime.

Peyton didn't appear to know who Zay was and his brother Eli wasn't much help, either.

Before signing off, Peyton dryly cracked: "Carr to Jones, one of the great tandems."

The brothers previously had a lot of fun ridiculing the idea of halftime adjustments, noting there isn't enough time to make any.

The Manning broadcast was so entertaining it will likely draw many fans away from the regular broadcast when they do future games.

However, the ratings for both will be combined.
