With only two preseason games to play, it’s time to look at the Buffalo Bills schedule and pick the games fans should be excited for this season.
The Buffalo Bills 2018 regular season is approaching quickly and it is time to look at some of the games fans should be excited for this season.
While many stand out on paper, here are three that fans may be most excited about, starting with the obvious one.
Week 8: New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills
A Week 8, Monday Night Football, under-the-lights matchup against the rival from New England. Their running back group has new names this year, including Jeremy Hill. The team had a big loss losing guard Nate Solder, but filled the space by trading for Trent Brown from the 49ers. Also picked up was former Falcons defensive end Adrian Clayborn, who registered 9.5 sacks last season.
It will be interesting to see if there will be a notable difference without longtime defensive coordinator Matt Patricia calling the plays. Looks like Bill Belichick will take over. Whoever will be the starting quarterback, they sure know what to expect from Tom Brady and the bunch.
Week 3: Buffalo Bills vs. Minnesota Vikings
Last year was a great year for the Vikings. With new quarterback Case Keenum, the team went all the way to the NFC Championship Game against the Eagles, and lost. Finishing the season 13-3. This year, the team signed Kirk Cousins to a 3-year, $84 million deal. Other new names are defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, safety George Iloka and quarterback Trevor Siemian (acquired by trade).
Who knows if this team will play the way they did a year ago, but fans should look forward to this one. Also it is he first time the Bills will play in their new state-of-the-art stadium, U.S. Bank Stadium.
Week 7: Indianapolis Colts vs. Buffalo Bills
The past few seasons for the Colts just haven’t been right without star quarterback Andrew Luck. Well it look’s like the team will get ‘luck’ this season with the supposed return of the quarterback.
The team hired former Bills quarterback Frank Reich as their head coach, after the back and forth with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. The team drafted Quenton Nelson with the No. 6 overall pick this year – a great selection.
The Colts could reach back to where they were before Luck’s injury. This is another game to look out for this season. The two teams met in the infamous snow game last year.
