Rex Ryan brought the Buffalo Bills to prime time, after all - and we don't even have to wait until the regular season for it to happen.
ESPN's first nationally televised game of the 2015 NFL season will take place at 8:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, August 20, with the Bills on the road against the Cleveland Browns. That game will take place after the Browns and the Bills spend time scrimmaging together during Bills training camp at St. John Fisher.

That August 20 date is the only of Buffalo's four preseason games that has a set date and time at the moment, but the team also announced the rest of their preseason schedule, as well. They'll open at home against the Carolina Panthers, followed by the Cleveland trip, a home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and then the annual finale against the Detroit Lions on the road.
