The schedule for the 2019 NFL season is officially out and it has confirmed one thing we probably already knew: television networks are not interested in the Buffalo Bills.
None of the Bills’ 16 games in the 2019 season are scheduled for prime time; all but two of them are scheduled for 1 p.m., so don’t expect to see much of your team if you’re Bills fan living out-of-state.
The lone games on the Bills’ schedule that aren’t in the early afternoon are the team’s Thanksgiving game against the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30, the lone nationally televised game on the schedule, and a Week 16 game against the New England Patriots which is TBD.
As you can see below, the row representing the Bills’ schedule is a whole bunch of white outside of Thanksgiving. The Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins and Tennessee Titans all have just one prime-time game as well.

Of course, if the Bills break out behind Josh Allen this year, they could get flexed into a more visible spot on the league’s television schedule.
The schedule news isn’t all bad for the Bills. Thanks to the wonders of the NFL’s divisional rank scheduling, the team is projected to have the third easiest schedule in the league based on last year’s performances. Unfortunately, Nos. 1 and 2 are division rivals.
