NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL schedule is out and it includes Buffalo
hosting Miami in Toronto on December 7th. It's part of an effort to
expand the league's market to Canada. This marks the first time the Bills will play during the regular season in Toronto, which is about an hour-and-a-half drive from Buffalo.
The season kicks off on Thursday, September 4th with Washington
at the Super Bowl champion New York Giants. It's one of four games
previously announced for the opening weekend. Chicago will play at
Indianapolis on Sunday night September 7th, and there will be two
games a night later: Minnesota at Green Bay and Denver at Oakland.
New England, which was upset by the Giants in the Super Bowl,
will be working on a record 19-game regular-season winning streak
when it opens at home on September 7th against Kansas City. And in
what has become an annual highlight game, Tom Brady and the
Patriots will take on Peyton Manning and the Colts on Sunday night
November 2nd in Indianapolis.
A regular-season game will be played in London's Wembley Stadium
a second consecutive year. New Orleans will be the "home" team
against San Diego on October 26th. The Dolphins and Giants played
there last season.
