New, comments

The 2014 Buffalo Bills season is in the books, so let's look ahead to 2015 by taking a peek at their list of opponents for next season.

The Buffalo Bills' 2015 regular season schedule won't be released until much later this offseason, but for now, we do know all 16 of their opponents - plus the venues in which they'll be playing (future blizzards notwithstanding). Let's run through the list.

AFC East (6)

As is always the case, the Bills will be playing their three division rivals - the Miami Dolphins, the New England Patriots, and the New York Jets - both at home and on the road.

  • Home: Miami (8-8), New England (12-4), NY Jets (4-12)
  • Away: Miami (8-8), New England (12-4), NY Jets (4-12)

AFC South (4)

The Bills play one entire AFC division, aside from their own, every year. In 2013, it was the North. In the just-completed 2014 campaign, it was the West. That leaves the South for 2015. (Remember that the away game against Jacksonville is actually taking place at Wembley Stadium in London.)

  • Home: Houston (9-7), Indianapolis (11-5)
  • Away: Jacksonville (3-13), Tennessee (2-14)

NFC East (4)

The four-year NFC cycle brings the NFC East back onto the Bills' schedule. Buffalo was 2-2 against this division in 2011, playing three of the four games (2-1) during their infamous 5-2 start that season.

  • Home: Dallas (12-4), NY Giants (6-10)
  • Away: Philadelphia (10-6), Washington (4-12)

No. 2 in AFC North, AFC West (2)

The remaining two games on the slate are played against AFC teams from the remaining two divisions not already on the schedule - in this case, the North and the West. The No. 1 teams in those divisions play each other, the No. 2 teams play each other, and so on. The second-place Bills (9-7) will play the second-place teams in both divisions, then.

  • Home: Cincinnati (10-5-1)
  • Away: Kansas City (9-7)
