The Buffalo Bills NFL 2019 schedule will be released at 8 p.m. Wednesday night. At this point, we know Buffalo's opponents and where the games will be played, but the dates will be finalized tonight.
Each year, parts of the NFL calendar are filtered before the NFL Network and ESPN run their launch programs at 8 p.m. We will be aware of all the news here. This is what we know so far.
Week 1: August 8-12 against Indianapolis Colts
Week 2: August 15-19 at Carolina Panthers.
Week 3: August 23 at Detroit Lions (National TV on the NFL network)
Week 4: August 29 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Miami Dolphins: The Bills lost their last road showdown against the Dolphins 21-17 on December 2, 2018. Buffalo took an advantage in the fourth quarter, but a touchdown reception by Kenny Stills put Miami at the top.
New England Patriots: Foxborough seems to give the Bills a lot of trouble. Buffalo has lost its last two contests on the road to the Patriots. His last victory on the road against the Patriots came in 2016, when Jacoby Brissett started playing for New England.
New York Jets: Buffalo embarrbaded New York 41-10 last season at MetLife Stadium. Matt Barkley threw for two touchdowns and LeSean McCoy added two touchdowns on the ground.
New York Giants: The Bills' last bout against the Giants on the road came in 2011. Buffalo lost 27-24 with a field goal by Lawrence Tynes with less than two minutes left in the game.
Tennessee Titans: Buffalo played for the last time in Tennessee on the road in 2015. The Bills remained in a 14-13 victory. Fun fact: the last three games between Titans and Bills have been decided by a single point.
Cleveland Browns: The Browns may be the favorites to win the AFC North after adding Odell Beckham Jr. to the offense. Buffalo's final game in Cleveland, a 37-24 loss, occurred in 2013.
Dallas Cowboys: Buffalo has only played against the Cowboys five times on the road in their history. Four of the games have been defeats with their only victory in 1993.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Buffalo will see life firsthand after Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell when the Bills head to the Heinz field. Buffalo has lost its last six games on the road against the Steelers.
Miami Dolphins: Buffalo finished the 2018 season on a high note with a 42-17 victory over the Dolphins at home. Miami could count on a rookie quarterback for this showdown or a familiar face on veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick.
New England Patriots: Buffalo finally has to beat the Patriots, right? Right?! Buffalo's last victory over New England at home came in 2011.
New York Jets: After Buffalo defeated the Jets at MetLife Stadium, the Jets entered Buffalo and came from behind to defeat the Bills 27-23. Hopefully this year will feature two clashes between Josh Allen and Sam Darnold.
Baltimore Ravens: Lamar Jackson, another first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, will head to Buffalo in 2019. If the Bills hope to win, they must contain Jackson and the Ravens on the ground. The Bills have a 2-0 record at home against the Ravens.
Cincinnati Bengals: expectations are low for the Bengals in Zac Taylor's first season as head coach, but the Bills should not look beyond Cincinnati. They have lost their last two home games against the Bengals and four of their last five games.
Philadelphia Eagles: Buffalo's last home game against the Eagles came in 2011. Buffalo prevailed 31-24.
Washington: Washington acquired Case Keenum as its short-term starting quarterback in 2019, but the Bills could face a rookie quarterback in this matchup. Buffalo has won its last four home games against Washington.
Denver Broncos: Buffalo have won their last two home games against Denver. Can they keep that streak against the Broncos led by Joe Flacco?
