The Buffalo Bills are no stranger to playing under the bright lights of primetime and this year won't be any different for them. Not only do the Bills have plenty of primetime games but they'll only have seven games in the traditional 1:00 PM EST slot.

That means that over half of the Bills schedule will be played where more people can watch them. This isn't a surprise considering they have one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Josh Allen, who is must-see television.

How many primetime games do the Bills have?

The Bills have five official primetime games for the 2024 season with the first one coming as early in the second week of the season. They'll play the Dolphins in Miami for Thursday Night Football, kicking off the slate of games on Amazon Prime for the season.

One week later, the Bills will continue their primetime ways, hosting the Jaguars on Monday Night Football. This will pit Allen against Trevor Lawrence in what should be a fun quarterback battle.

As the informerials always say, but wait there's more! The Bills have a third straight primetime game the next week, heading to Baltimore for Sunday Night Football.

In Week 6, the Bills head to New Jersey for a Sunday night road trip against the Jets. Let's hope this trip to MetLife Stadium goes better than it did the last time Buffalo played there.

From there, the Bills will go back to playing on Sunday afternoons until Week 13 when they host the 49ers for Sunday Night Football in what should be an absolute banger of a game. That is their last scheduled primetime game for the season but of course, they could games flexed in or out of primetime.

Aside from the traditional primetime games, they'll have four games in the late window on Sundays, which means more people will be able to watch them when they're not buried in the 1:00 PM slate of games.

The top teams in the league typically get five or six primetime games so this shows that, once again, the NFL believes in the Bills' ability to put on a show when given the chance.
