2016 Buffalo Bills schedule: all dates and times finalized

The Buffalo Bills have finished up their preseason schedule and it's time to pen them on your calendar.

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

When the NFL releases the preseason schedule, they always give teams a window of a few days to schedule the games, leaving exact dates and times up to specific teams. The Buffalo Bills have finally finalized their dates and times and we now know all the games in both the preseason and regular season. (Playoff schedule to be determined, of course.)

The annual Kid's Day game will likely coincide with their final home contest of the exhibition season. With a 4:00 p.m. start time, their Week 2 game should have lots of activities all day long and something following the game, as well. Also of note is the team's continuation of an annual tradition - the concluding tilt against the Detroit Lions.

Here is the Bills' preseason schedule, which will no doubt interfere with something in your late Summer plans. Which contests stick out most to you?
