On the latest episode of the Billieve Podcast, host John Boccacino and co-host Jamie D’Amico discuss the recently-released 2020 schedule for the Buffalo Bills, highlighting what they like and what they don’t like about the schedule.
On the heels of making the playoffs twice in the last three years, the NFL schedule makers granted Buffalo four prime-time games for the first time since the 1996 season. While the schedule (on paper) is tougher than last year—according to last year’s records, the Bills’ 2020 schedule is tied for the fifth-toughest in the league—there’s a lot to dissect on our schedule breakdown podcast.
Besides the fact that America is going to see a lot of the Buffalo Bills on television this fall and winter, including a Thursday night home clash with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, we also liked the fact that the Bills won’t be facing a team coming off extra rest; that Buffalo has a chance to race out to a fast start; and that the Bills get to face three West Coast teams at home at 1 p.m.
What gives us concern is the brutal stretch from Weeks 13 through 16, when Buffalo plays Monday night at the reigning NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, Sunday night vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, Week 15 at the Denver Broncos, and Monday night at the New England Patriots.
