LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins fans in Southwest Florida will have to seek alternative plans if they want to watch their team play on TV this weekend.

In a bit of a scheduling anomaly this weekend, Fox Sports has the rights to both the Miami Dolphins-New Yor Jets game and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Buffalo Bills games, both taking place at 1pm this Sunday.

Since Fox 4 has established itself as the "Home of the Bucs", we have chosen to air their game this Sunday.

Dolphins games, and AFC matchups in general, usually air on CBS stations.  However, this week's game was assigned to Fox Sports.

The 2-3 Buccaneers are looking to move out of last place in the NFC South as they face the 3-2 Bills.  Quarterback Jameis Winston is expected to start for the Buccaneers after leaving last week's game with a shoulder injury.
