It's still far from a certainty that NFL football will be played in 2011, but as expected, the NFL has begun to unveil its 2011 schedule, starting with preseason games. The Buffalo Bills will play four preseason games next year, as usual, with all but one occurring on a Saturday. None of the team's pre-season games will be nationally televised.
The NFL's regular season schedule will likely kick off with a Thursday night game on September 8, with the rest of the Week 1 schedule taking place on Sunday, September 11. Again, that's provided a labor deal is in place.
