Josh Allen Hints at Thanksgiving Night Game in Orchard Park
Tomorrow night is the big reveal. The entire 2023 NFL schedule will be released at 8 pm, although if you have been paying attention to the last few years, there are always reports and “leaks” on Twitter on the day of the schedule release.
We already know that the Buffalo Bills will play the Jacksonville Jaguars in London on October 8th, from Tottenham Stadium. It will be a home game for the Bills, against a Jaguars team who will be playing the second of two straight games in London. That means they will have more rest than the Bills who are traveling that week.
As for the rest of the schedule, we don’t know yet. The Bills could play the Jets, Chiefs or Eagles to start the season — those seem like the most talked-about teams for the week 1 opener.
The Bills could also play on Christmas Eve night or Christmas Day; both options are still on the table.
What about another Thanksgiving Day game? No way, right?
The Bills have played three Thanksgiving games in the last four years, with 2020 the only one which didn’t feature the Bills on Turkey Day. It feels like the NFL wouldn’t do that again to Buffalo.
But Josh Allen’s comments on Kyle Brandt’s Basement show seem to hint that a Bills night game in Orchard Park, on Thanksgiving, is very possible.
Here’s what Allen had to say about the possibility of the Bills playing a home game on Thanksgiving.
It would have to be a night game, since the Detroit Lions always play at 12:30 pm and the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 pm.
Would you be okay with the Bills playing a Thanksgiving Day game in Orchard Park?
