The Buffalo Bills' 2017 regular season schedule has been officially released, and Sean McDermott will be appearing on prime-time television for just one game next season.
The Bills’ lone nighttime tilt will be in Week nine against the New York Jets in New Jersey. It’s two weeks after their bye week, setting up a mini-bye to finish off the season. Lots of 1:00 p.m. start times on the calendar this year, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Giving a quick glance at the schedule, back-to-back divisional road games to end the season seems like a bear. New Era Field is hosting the World Junior Championships in an outdoor ice hockey extravaganza, leading to the circumstances. Four division games in five weeks to end the season could be brutal or just the thing they need to make a push to the playoffs.
There will be three straight December home games. If you’re a fan of cold, metal bleachers you are in luck, friends!
One other game of note is Sean McDermott returning to Carolina for the Panthers’ home opener.
Here's the Bills' full 2017 regular season schedule. Which contests stick out most to you? What is your road trip?
