5. Finally… the Bills have returned to primetime!

Okay, okay, it hasn’t been that long! But it sure feels like it!

For the first time since 2009, the Bills will return to Monday Night Football when they travel to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots on November 23. Ironically enough, the last MNF game for the Bills back in 2009 was also against the Patriots — except it was to open up the season.

Aside from the Monday night game, the Bills will appear on Thursday Night Football for the fourth consecutive season when they travel to Rex Ryan’s old stopping grounds to take on the New York Jets.

Although the Thursday night game is nice to see, it’s the Sunday and Monday night games that really count. In fact, up until this season, the Bills own the league’s longest active streak for not appearing in a primetime game, as the team has not been on Monday Night Football since 2009, and has not played on Sunday Night Football since 2007.

It will certainly be a refreshing sight to see the Bills in primetime. The next step will be getting a home primetime game at Ralph Wilson Stadium next season.
