The Buffalo Bills begin the Rex Ryan era in 2015 with a schedule that is the 19th most difficult in the NFL. They have a very difficult beginning to the season despite three of these first four games at home as they have to play the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and the Giants. The Bills get to play on ESPN’s Monday Night Football this season for the first time in five years because they go to the New England Patriots in Week 11.
The Buffalo Bills will be playing on ESPN this season on Monday Night Football however they won’t be on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. They have not played on NBC since 2007, the longest drought of any team in the league. The schedule for the Bills is not easy but they could get a rest if they don’t really have to handle Tom Brady in Week 2 as Brady is facing a possible suspension. The bye week for the Bills comes in Week 8 at the right time just after their game in London against Jacksonville.
The 2nd half of the schedule for the Bills is difficult as they have five road games in six weeks from Week 10 through Week 15. It is very rare in the NFL to see a team play five road games in six weeks and two of the games appear to be sure losses at New England on a Monday and then playing at Kansas City the next Sunday.
