The NFL has released its 2014 schedule, and we now know the dates and times for all 16 of the Buffalo Bills' regular season contests next season. (Their postseason schedule will, of course, be settled in late December.)
A previously-reported (by FOX Sports Wisconsin) Monday Night Football home game against the Green Bay Packers has been proven false; the Bills will host the Packers at 1PM ET on Sunday, December 14 in their home finale. Buffalo's only prime time game this season will occur on the night of Thursday, November 13 on the road against the Miami Dolphins. 13 of their 16 games are 1:00 starts.
A widely-covered misinterpretation of a BuffaloBills.com post about the schedule was finally proven untrue: the Bills will not play at the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Instead, they'll visit Ford Field in Week 5, and the Lions will host the Bears on Thanksgiving Day.
Here is the full slate of games. Plan your fall accordingly.
