Buffalo Bills 2017 preseason schedule

New, comments

The Bills open up August 10 at home.

The Buffalo Bills’ schedule for the 2017 NFL season was released this week, and it contained a few games which should provide interesting story lines outside of the games themselves. The preseason schedule, however, contains far less intrigue. Here is how the Bills will spend the end of their summer preparing for the regular season (and praying that everyone makes it through the exhibition season unscathed):

August 10, 7 p.m. ET— vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings will play their first game A.A.P. (After Adrian Peterson) at The Cap.

August 17, 7 p.m. ET— @ Philadelphia Eagles

Head Coach Sean McDermott makes a return to the city where he held his first job in professional football, but this time as a head coach. Former Bills Nigel Bradham, Ron Brooks, and Jon Dorenbos join former Buffalo defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in welcoming former Eagle LeSean McCoy back to the City of Brotherly Love.

August 26, 7 p.m. ET— @ Baltimore Ravens

Tyrod Taylor returns to Baltimore for the second time as a starting quarterback, this time in the “dress rehearsal” game of the preseason. His first return in week one of last season did not go very well (15-22, 111 yards, 0 TD, 0 INT).

August 31, 7 p.m. ET— vs. Detroit Lions

The preseason concludes with the annual tilt between Detroit and Buffalo.

After playing two preseason games in six days, the Bills will have until September 10 to prepare for their 2017 opener, a home game against the New York Jets. May the time from now until then pass quickly!
