Earlier today the Buffalo Bills ran an article that looked at “13 things to know about 2014 opponents”.
Within this post, the Buffalo Bills looked at some interesting facts that deal with the opponents that the Bills will face from winning and losing records to the last time they won in New England (2000).
They also went in and talked about their match up with the Detroit Lions this year.
“8. Schwartz makes first visit to Detroit on opposing sideline
All-Time Regular Season Series 4-4-1 / 1-3 on Road
Bills first year defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will make his first visit to Ford Field on the opposing sideline after he served as the Lions’ head coach for the previous five years.
Buffalo and Detroit will meet for the 10th time in the regular season in 2014. The Bills have played in eight previous Thanksgiving Day games (4-4) in team history with their last appearance on Turkey Day coming in 1994.”
With this statement it can be looked at that the Bills already know that they will be playing the Lions in Detroit on Thanksgiving. Unless they were just providing details of their match ups which have, in the past, been on Thanksgiving.
Another interesting fact is that the Dolphins were the only other team that could possibly be a part of the Thanksgiving festivities as CBS is covering the game. The Dolphins played on Thanksgiving back in 2011 so they may be giving the Bills a shot, seeing as they have not played since 1994 or it could be that the Bills did sweep the Dolphins last year.
If true, you may have one definite game in the Bills Schedule Challenge that you will get right.
