The Bills have the maximum primetime games plus Thanksgiving and two flex options
The Buffalo Bills’ 2022 schedule is here!
The Bills begin the season with consecutive national primetime appearances. First they play in the NFL’s Opening Night against the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. In Week 2, it’s Monday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans. In total, the Bills received the maximum allotment of five primetime games!
Those aren’t the only nationally televised games for the Bills, though. They’ll play on Thanksgiving for the third time in four years when they face the Detroit Lions in the early Turkey Day slot. They also will face the Kansas City Chiefs in a late afternoon time slot on CBS, which should be shown nearly coast to coast. (The Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders will be on in their local markets.)
Even after seven national games, the Bills could still find themselves in two more national games. (That’s more than half their contests on national TV.) There are flex options in Weeks 15 and 18 that could find Buffalo in even more national time slots.
The Bills have opened as road underdogs in their first game of the year, but just by a point. On a neutral field, Buffalo would be favored per our friends at DraftKings SportsBook.
