Buffalo Bills release finalized dates and times for 2020 preseason games

New, comments

We know the Bills’ entire schedule (for now)

On Friday, the Buffalo Bills released their preseason schedule of dates and times. As is typical in the NFL, they schedule game windows and allow the teams to figure out which dates and times in the window works best for stadium and team limitations. All of the games will be broadcast on WIVB, channel 4 in Buffalo.

Friday, August 14
At Baltimore Ravens
7:30 P.M. Eastern

Friday, August 21
Hosting Atlanta Falcons
7:00 P.M. Eastern

Saturday, August 29
Hosting Indianapolis Colts
4:00 P.M. Eastern

Thursday, September 3
At Detroit Lions
7:00 P.M. Eastern

Based on the early start time and the fact that it’s on a Saturday, it’s likely the plan is for August 29th to be the team’s annual Kids Day game. Of course, in the era of COVID-19, it’s unclear if any of these games will be played or if there will be fans in the stands for them.

This announcement rounds out the Bills’ schedule for the fall, which is embedded below.
