ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills released their 2014 regular season schedule Wednesday night. The slate features one primetime game, a Thursday night matchup on the road against the Miami Dolphins. The rest of the team's games are set to be played on Sundays.
The Bills will open the season on the road at Chicago Sep. 7, followed by home games against Miami and San Diego. They then travel to Houston to wrap up the month of September.
October features a game at Detroit, consecutive home games against New England and Minnesota, and a road contest with the Jets.
The Bills have a bye in Week 9, then host Kansas City in their first game in November. They'll have a quick turnaround after that, traveling to Miami four days later for their lone primetime showdown on Thur. Nov. 13. Home games with the Jets and Browns round out November.
The closing stretch could be a tough one, with three of the four games on the road in December. They'll travel to the defending AFC champion Broncos, return home for the Packers, and finish with back-to-back road games at Oakland and New England.
