The NFL has not yet released its 2014 regular season schedule, but league reporters are beginning to glean details about next season's games. One such reporter is Paul Imig of FOX Sports Wisconsin, who reports that the Buffalo Bills will host the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football at Ralph Wilson Stadium this fall.
Imig's report does not specify a date for the meeting. Again, the NFL has not released its schedule yet, so the report has not been confirmed, and may not be for a little while.
The Ralph has not hosted a Monday Night Football game since the 2008 season, when Rian Lindell missed a last-second field goal to allow Brady Quinn and the Cleveland Browns to beat the Trent Edwards led Bills by a final of 29-27. The Bills lost on MNF the following year in a gut-wrenching 25-24 decision in New England, as well. The last time the Bills met the Packers was in 2010, as the Packers were gearing up for a Super Bowl win; Aaron Rodgers and company won that Week 2 contest by a score of 34-7.
Reports are also swirling that the Bills will play on Thanksgiving Day on the road against the Detroit Lions. Those reports are based on this BuffaloBills.com article, which mentions that the Bills have played eight times previously on Thanksgiving while connecting the dots between the Lions and new Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. The Bills-Lions Turkey Day game has been speculated for a while now, but this does not strike us as much of a confirmation.
