Obviously the big story is the game they picked to go to Skydome. Honestly I’m not all that upset about the Jets going there. I hate the Jets, but not like the Dolphins. This also means the Colts will come to Ralph Wilson, which is a chance for Bills fans to actually see a good team. It also gives the Bills a distinct weather advantage against Indy, something Bills fans hated about last year’s game against Miami.

It’s a smart move to put the Toronto game on national television, both as a marketing tool and a way to appease Bills fans a bit. Although half of them may not be able to see the game, it’s an easy way of getting the Bills another prime time game. The last three games of the year (NE, @ATL, IND) look like potential “Flex” games for NBC if the playoff picture works out as well.

Overall not too bad. What do you guys think?
