The Buffalo Bills' 2008 schedule has been announced, with the Bills' return to Monday Night Football the highlight. The Bills will host the Cleveland Browns on MNF, the second straight season the Bills will host a Monday Night game. The team will also play its regular season matchup against the Dolphins on December 7th in Toronto. The full schedule (once again, big ups to Sean Yuille of Pride of Detroit for coding up another beauty):

Let me be the first to announce my displeasure that the Bills are playing the Dolphins in Toronto. What is the international appeal with that franchise in the first place? Not to mention the fact that watching the Bills pound our biggest rivals into submission is one of the better home games of the season - and it's happened exactly that way for a few years now. Why the NFL exported a division game, I'll never know. Exporting the Oakland or San Diego games makes a whole lot more sense to me. But maybe it's just me. I'll miss watching our defense torch John Beck, though (live anyways).

One positive: the Bills will not play the Patriots coming off of their bye week this year. The Pats' bye is in Week 5, and they face the 49ers in Week Six. The NFL finally caught themselves there (or realized we'd caught them).

Thoughts on the schedule?
