ORCHARD PARK, NY – The Buffalo Bills announced their 2006 schedule today. There are no nationally scheduled games at this time. All regular season games will be played at 1:00pm Eastern Time. This may change, however, as the later nationally televised games of the season (weeks 10 and following) will be determined according to the best matchups at that time. This may move a game later in the Bills’ schedule to the new NBC Sunday Night game.
The Bills will open the regular season on the road against the New England Patriots at 1:00pm on September 10th.
Highlights of the schedule include three December home games (as requested on The Review by Uncle Josh!) against San Diego, Miami, and Tennesee. Also, head coach Dick Jauron will have back to back road games in October against two of his former teams, Chicago and then Detroit.
The bye week falls at week eight, so almost the middle of the season. That is usually advantageous. In addition to the regular season schedule, the pre-season schedule was announced. The Bills will open the pre-season on Saturday, August 12th at the Carolina Panthers.
