BUFFALO – The Buffalo Bill 2021 NFL season schedule was released on Wednesday, and after last season’s run to the AFC Championship Game, the team was rewarded with four primetime appearances.
The Bills are scheduled to play on Monday Night Football twice and Sunday Night Football once. They’ll also head to New Orleans for a Thanksgiving night game against the Saints.
Only one of the primetime games is at home: The Bills host the Patriots on Monday, Dec. 6. The Bills will travel to Kansas City and Tennessee for Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football in consecutive weeks on Oct. 10 and 18.
The Bills’ home opener is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Steelers. The team have nine home games this season thanks to the NFL’s new 18-week schedule; next year, NFC teams will get the additional home game.
The Bills are never on the road more than two weeks at time. They are scheduled to have normal or extra rest ahead of every division game. They don’t even have to travel to the Pacific or Mountain time zones — their longest road trips are Kansas City and New Orleans.
