The Buffalo Bills have four primetime games within the first six weeks of the season.

In the first six games of the 2024 season, the Bills have four primetime games, which include three consecutive weeks in the spotlight, from Week Two through Week Four. They have two Monday Night games, one Sunday and one Thursday Night. The opponents are the Dolphins (Thursday), the Jaguars (Monday), the Ravens (Sunday), and the Jets (Monday). The only two non-primetime games are the Cardinals in Week One, and the Texans in Week Five.

I find it interesting the league crammed all these primetime games in early, and only one later in the year against the 49ers in Week 13, a Sunday Night game. Here is my thought on why this is, which also plays into the league putting the Bills against the Patriots in two of the last three games. I don't think the league is very high on the Bills this season and figure they won't be relevant after the first month and a half of the regular season. Why else would they pack in the early primetime games and backload it with the Patriots?
