Sure Looks Like This Will Be The Bills 2022 Opener
Let’s be honest here, there is no off-season in the NFL. Fan excitement is at an all-time high. March and April are just as exciting as the regular season, with free agency and the NFL Draft.
The Buffalo Bills have had a very busy off-season. It started with coaching moves like losing Brian Daboll and promoting Ken Dorsey. Lately, it’s all about free agency.
The Bills made arguably the biggest splash of free agency on Wednesday evening, signing edge rusher Von Miller to a 6-year, $120 million contract.
Miller has been one of the league’s best defensive players in the last decade and immediately makes the Bills the favorite to win it all next February.
What yesterday’s move also does is make the Bills 2022 regular season opener that much more likely.
The opening regular season game of the NFL season is always the Super Bowl champ playing at home on Thursday Night Football.
Normally, the NFL doesn’t like making that game between division rivals, so the Arizona Cardinals likely won’t be the Rams opponent in week 1. The next logical choice would be the Dallas Cowboys, who the Rams play in 2022, but since Dallas just played in the TNF opener in 2021, that likely won’t happen either.
The Bills are sure looking like the opponent for the Rams in Los Angeles for the TNF opener.
The league wants to good teams and since the Bills are a Super Bowl favorite, who JUST landed Von Miller (former Rams edge rusher), it makes way too much sense.
The NFL schedule will be released sometime in May. What say you, Bills Mafia? Yay or nay on the Bills opening on Thursday Night Football?
