Buffalo Bills 2015 Schedule Announced

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

BBD Editor: Dan Hope

The Buffalo Bills’ schedule for their 16-game 2015 NFL regular season was announced Tuesday.

New coach Rex Ryan and the Bills will open the season at home against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. ET. They will remain at home for Week 2, when Rex and the Bills will have their first of two opportunities this season to play the defending champion New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 20.

The second game against the New England Patriots, set for Nov. 23 (Week 11), is also notable in that it will be the Bills’ first appearance on ESPN’s Monday Night Football since 2009. That game will be part of a back-to-back set of midseason weekday primetime games, as the Bills will play Rex Ryan’s former team, the New York Jets, on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football, in Week 10 (Nov. 12). Both of those games—the Bills’ only night contests this year—will be played on the road.

The Bills’ game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, which will be the first game to streamed as a digital-only worldwide broadcast, is set for Oct. 25 (Week 7) at 9:30 a.m. ET.

In Week 14, the Bills will travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles (Dec. 13, 1 p.m. ET), a game in which new Bills running back LeSean McCoy and new Eagles linebacker Kiko Alonso will square off against their former teams.

Finally, the Bills will close the season against the Jets at home on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. ET.

The Bills’ full schedule for the 2015 season is below.

When the Buffalo Bills hired Rex Ryan in January, one thing was for sure: the Bills weren’t going to play it safe with their acquisitions this offseason. That certainly hasn’t been the case so far—especially Friday—when the Bills agreed to terms with former New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

At his best, Harvin can be one of the NFL’s most dynamic playmakers. A 5’11″, 184-pound offensive weapon who ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the 2009 NFL Scouting Combine, Harvin has a combination of speed and agility that makes him a big-play threat as not only a pass-catcher, but also as a runner and kickoff returner.

These qualities could make Harvin a big asset to the Bills. As a player who can create yardage for himself with the ball in his hands, Harvin could be highly valuable for an offense that has no great options at the quarterback position, and will therefore struggle to be prolific throwing the ball downfield.

With that being said, Harvin has often been more trouble than he is worth, and certainly qualifies as a high-risk, high-reward type of signing for the Bills.

The first blockbuster deal of the NFL offseason just went down, and the Buffalo Bills are involved. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Bills have agreed to trade inside linebacker Kiko Alonso, a rookie sensation for the team in 2013, to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for running back LeSean McCoy, a two-time first-team All-Pro.
