The NFL's schedule rotations mean the Bills will play all the teams from the AFC West and NFC West divisions.
When the 2019 schedule was released last spring, the Bills had 14 games that were scheduled to start at 1 p.m. on Sunday. The two exceptions were the Thanksgiving day game in Dallas against the Cowboys and a Saturday December date with the New England Patriots.
That won't be the case this year.
