The NFL released the 2011-12 schedule moments ago despite the fact that there is doubt that the season will even take place. Or start on time.
Not surprisingly, the Buffalo Bills have not been selected for any primetime games for the second season in a row. This year, the Bills have 15 games on Sunday and 1 game on a Saturday (Christmas Eve). 14 will start at the customary 1:00pm start time with two 4pm games. This makes this year slightly more varied than last year when the Bills played all 16 games on Sunday at 1pm. The Bills will travel a total of 13,640 miles over the course of the season and their longest road stretch is 3 consecutive games in Dallas, Miami and New York.

The cumulative 2010 record of Bills’ opponents is 137-119 making this yet another difficult schedule for a Bills team coming off a 4-12 record last year. Oh, and we get to play on New Years Day in Foxboro. What a great way to kick off 2012, right?
