The NFL released its 2014 preseason schedule on Wednesday, and the Buffalo Bills' quintet of games is now official.
Buffalo will open the 2014 season in the Hall of Fame Game against the New York Giants, which was announced at the end of February. Both the Bills and the Giants have notable Hall inductees this year; wide receiver Andre Reed is an enshrinee, as is former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan.
The Bills have previously agreed to a trio of training camp practices with the Pittsburgh Steelers at their training camp site of St. Vincent College, so it's fair to expect that those will occur before the Bills play the Steelers on the road in Week 2 of the preseason.
Buffalo will also play their first three preseason games on the road, allowing time for renovations to Ralph Wilson Stadium to be completed before their first home game of the season.
Last month, the Bills announced a new variable ticket pricing model that purportedly will lower the price of preseason tickets. The team did not, however, disclose the pricing for exhibition games, instead referring fans to the team's ticket office. You can find that information here.
