    The 2022 Buffalo Bills are the ONLY team in NFL History to win 3 Thursday games

    In a season.

    3-0 on Thursday.

    F the NFL for scheduling them in back to back Thurs games. 3 games in 12 days, all wins. This should never, ever happen. Absolutely ridiculous.

    NFL just flexed the Bills to next Thursday.

    Re: The 2022 Buffalo Bills are the ONLY team in NFL History to win 3 Thursday games

    Maybe we should put in a request to play Thursday games only!
    Want me to be okay with losing? Nah.
    Want me to be okay with our level of play when its not up to the standard? Nah.
    Its easy to criticize my reaction more than the result.

    3-0 on the road in those games too.

    Be nice if more of these prime time games were at home.

    I feel like night home games are ****ty for the fans who actually go. The Bills are a regional team and they draw from Rochester, Syracuse, Southern Ontario, etc, so a lot of fans have a couple of hours of driving after the game, especially with game traffic. That means they're getting home at 2 or 3 am when they have work or school the next day.

    Re: The 2022 Buffalo Bills are the ONLY team in NFL History to win 3 Thursday games

    The Bills also became the first team in NFL history to beat four former Super Bowl-winning head coaches on the road in a single season (via OptaStats). Not only did they beat a six-time Super Bowl winner in Bill Belichick on Thursday, but they've also beaten the Rams (Sean McVay), the Ravens (John Harbaugh) and the Chiefs (Andy Reid) this season.

    But they suck and are not contenders.

    Wait until they start with Tuesday and/or Friday night games. The non-Sunday schedule is only likely to grow imo.

    Personally I'm not sure why it's TNF and not FNF. I much rather watch a game on Friday night.

    Plus it would be easier on the players.

    There was something about people not watching TV on Friday nights which is why Thursday was picked.

    1. Friday is traditionally HS football night. Just like Saturday is reserved for College.

    2. people are out partying Friday night or at those HS games. So ratings would be lower.

    NFLPA would have something to say about that.

    Already making noise about the current scheduling, with mile long injury reports showing why.

    1) High School football season usually ends mid to late October.


    2) There is usually sports on TV when out partying in bars.


    The NFL should try switching a week 7 TNF football game to Friday night and see what the ratings are.

    And F the NFL for having them play MNF and then have to travel to Miami early in the season. That one still sticks in my craw.
