Buffalo Bills: 4 bold predictions for the 2021 season based on schedule
The Buffalo Bills 2021 schedule was officially announced last week and they now know when they are playing each team on their path to trying to repeat as AFC East champions. This year the Bills will have 17 regular-season games with the NFL schedule expanding by one game.
The league decided that the extra game would alternate each year between home and away and the Bills will start that rotation with an additional home game this season. There is no question that this is a benefit for the Bills and leads into the first of four bold predictions for the upcoming season based on their schedule.
Buffalo Bills will suffer only one loss at home
The Buffalo Bills have nine home games this season, including three of their first four games. They also finish the season in the same way with three of their final four games in Western New York. The weather has always helped create a home-field advantage for the Bills and at this point in the year Steve Tasker said it best: “It might be chilly“.
In addition to the three AFC East rivals (New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots) they also play Washington, Houston, Indianapolis, Carolina, Atlanta, Pittsburgh.
When looking at this group of opponents the two that jump out are Pittsburgh and Indianapolis that should pose the biggest threat to the Bills. This is likely where the Bills’ one home loss would come from this coming season.
