On the latest episode of Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Anthony Marino discuss the unveiling of the 2019 Buffalo Bills’ schedule, and give their final thoughts on what Buffalo should (and shouldn’t) do with the No. 9 overall pick in the NFL Draft.

The schedule is highlighted by Buffalo’s first Thanksgiving game in 25 years when the Bills travel to Dallas Nov. 28. The Bills open the season with back-to-back games in New Jersey against the New York Jets and New York Giants before welcoming Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals to Orchard Park in Week 3 for the home opener.

Buffalo closes out the opening month of the season hosting Tom Brady and the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, one of four playoff teams on Buffalo’s schedule in 2019.

The Bills—the only team in the league without a true primetime game—will play a balanced schedule featuring two home games in every month. The Bills don’t have a west-coast trip, and outside of the trek to Dallas and to South Beach for the clash with the Miami Dolphins, the Bills won’t be logging as many travel miles this year as they have in the past.

Boccacino and Marino also offer up their final thoughts on who Buffalo should draft with the No. 9 overall pick in next week’s NFL Draft, and mention who/what position they would steer clear of with Buffalo’s first-round pick.

What do you think, Bills fans? How excited are you for the Thanksgiving game? Are there any other road trips you’ll be making this year? What would you do at pick No. 9 if you were general manager Brandon Beane? Are there any players/positions you hope Buffalo steers clear of with the pick? Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section, and check out our podcast for thoughts on these topics and more on the latest Billieve: A Buffalo Bills Fan Podcast.
