NEW YORK (AP) -The Buffalo Bills will play in Toronto on Dec. 7 against Miami as part of an effort to expand their market to Canada.
This marks the first time the Bills will play during the regular season in Toronto, about a 1 1/2-hour drive from Buffalo. The game was one of the highlights of the NFL schedule released Tuesday.
The season opens Sept. 4 with Washington at the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, a game already announced along with three others from the opening weekend: Chicago at Indianapolis on Sunday night, Sept. 7, and two games Monday night, Sept 8: Minnesota at Green Bay and Denver at Oakland.
For the second consecutive year, a regular-season game will be played in London at Wembley Stadium, with New Orleans the ``home'' team against San Diego on Oct. 26. The Dolphins and Giants played there last season.
New England, which was upset in the Super Bowl by the Giants but has a record 19-game regular-season winning streak, will open at home against Kansas City on Sept. 7. In what has become an annual highlight game, Tom Brady and the Patriots will be at Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, Nov. 2.
In the three Thanksgiving games, Tennessee will be at Detroit, Seattle at Dallas and Arizona at Philadelphia in the night game televised by the NFL Network.
The NFL Network games, in their third season, will start earlier this season with Denver at Cleveland on Thursday, November 6. In all, there will be eight, but no Saturday night game on the final weekend when last year the Patriots finished an unbeaten regular season by beating the Giants 38-35 in a contest that also was shown by NBC and CBS because the NFL Network's dispute with major cable systems limited its availability.
The other NFL Network games are all on Thursday nights except for Saturday, Dec. 20, when Baltimore is at Dallas.
