The long wait is over for Buffalo Bills players and fans, the 2012 Buffalo Bills schedule has finally been released. Early thoughts on the schedule could be promising for Bills fans as they have four of their final five games at home, including week 17 vs the division rival New York Jets.
One major drawback is the team will not have any Sunday or Monday prime time games this upcoming year, something some fans thought might be in the cards. Looking at divisions, the Bills and the AFC East will cross with the NFC West.
This schedule could be a great one for a Bills team looking to finally make it back in the playoffs after a 12 year drought.

Week 1- 1:00 pm @ New York Jets on CBS
Week 2- 1:00 pm vs Kansas City Chiefs on CBS
