The NFL announced the Buffalo Bills will be one of five teams that will be part of the NFL’s international series. While many of the details are still to be determined, we know this game will count as one of their home games for the 2023 season.
The Tennessee Titans will also play at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next season as well; however, it will not be against Buffalo.
The last time the Bills traveled to London, it was against the Jacksonville Jaguars, where Buffalo lost 34 – 31 in a wild game.
The possible opponents for Buffalo are the Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, New England Patriots, or the Miami Dolphins.
Five of these teams are current playoff teams, and two of them, the Jets and Patriots, were borderline. Who would you prefer to see Buffalo play in London? If I had my choice, I’d go with Tampa Bay, a non-divisional opponent, who likely won’t be very good next season.
Something that may surprise some Bills fans is Buffalo has played the second most games outside of the US, only the Jacksonville Jaguars have played more, with eight total games. Six of the Bills’ seven games outside the US, were during the Toronto Series when they played home games at Toronto’s Rogers Centre from 2008 through 2012, a series many fans were ecstatic when it was canceled.
The Bills are 1 – 6 in these games, the lone win coming against the Chicago Bears in 2010 when the Bills won 22 – 19. But all these games were played during the drought years and the Buffalo Bills were not a good team. This will be Josh Allen’s first game as part of the NFL’s international series.
