Buffalo Bills have more time to prepare for Kansas City Chiefs
The schedule shift for the Buffalo Bills matchup with the Tennessee Titans doesn’t only impact this week but also Week 6 when the Bills were scheduled to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.
While it is disappointing to see them lose a primetime matchup, this could actually be positive because now they will have an extra day to prepare for the Chiefs. The original schedule would have given the Bills three days between their matchup with the Titans and the game against the Chiefs.
However, now with the shift for the Titans game to be played Tuesday and the Chiefs game moving to Sunday this will give them actually four days between games. This is a benefit in terms of preparation but also time for players to rest between weeks.
This could especially be a benefit for a player like Matt Milano. The team’s starting linebacker suffered a pec injury against the Las Vegas Raiders and Sean McDermott described his injury as week-to-week.
He has yet to practice this week and could have been a longshot to play against the Chiefs. However, now moving the game from Thursday to Sunday can help his chances to be on the field.
These changes certainly hinge on the Tennessee Titans not having any more positive cases between now and Tuesday. However, if the schedule moves forward as proposed this should actually help the Buffalo Bills in the coming weeks.
