Primetime Buffalo Bills: NFL VP suggests that could be the case once again

Sundays at 1:00 pm may not be the standard anymore

On Wednesday’s edition of Sal Capaccio’s podcast SalSports... and Stuff, fans of the Buffalo Bills got an intriguing hint about the upcoming schedule. While the regular-season schedule isn’t going to officially drop until May 12, that doesn’t mean teasers won’t exist.

From the official description of Capaccio’s podcast:

“National Football League Vice President of Broadcast Planning, Mike North joined me on the SalSports... and Stuff podcast to discuss the 2021 NFL schedule and made it clear that the Bills will be showcased a lot once again.”

Now that I’m reading that again, it sounds a lot stronger than a “hint” doesn’t it?

Last season, Buffalo played on Monday Night Football twice, and Sunday Night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. For a team used to a token Thursday Night Football game it was quite the shift. Per Mike North... we’d better get used to it.

Capaccio also added some context:

As fans, there’s a few ways to see this shift. On one hand, it’s a sign of respect in the league and national media. There’s also the allure of the primetime games themselves. On the other hand, football is rooted in tradition and for the Buffalo Bills the tradition of Sunday at 1:00 pm is deeply entrenched.

So Rumblers, how are you feeling about the Primetime Bills?
