Expectations are high this year – again! With Josh and Diggs back to lead the offense and Von Miller picked up in the off-season to reenergize the defense, all eyes are on the Super Bowl this year. Start planning your trip to see one of the most electrifying teams in the NFL!
The Bills Mafia is known to travel heavy to see their team play on the road. This year, some intriguing games are set up on the road. Let’s see if you can parlay your trip to see the Bills with other games in the area.
2022 Buffalo Bills Schedule
Thursday, September 8 – 8:20pm ET at LA
The Bills and Von Miller take on the Super Champs and open the season at SoFi Stadium in LA. Hang out on one of LA’s beaches on Friday and get ready for more football. On Saturday, visit one of college football’s most historic venues as UCLA host Alabama State (not Alabama) at the Rose Bowl on the 10th. On Sunday, head back to SoFi to see the Vegas Raiders take on the Chargers in an early AFC West showdown.
If baseball’s your thing, head down to San Diego to catch the Padres as they play host to the Dodgers in some late-season NL West action. While you’re there, Idaho State takes on San Diego State in the Aztec’s new, SnapDragon stadium.
Monday, Sep. 19 – 7:15pm ET
The Bills go back-to-back with primetime games. Let’s see if we can repay the favor from last year’s fourth-down debacle. Over in Syracuse, the Orange take on Purdue in a rare ACC vs B1G matchup on Saturday. Up in Toronto, the Jays host the Orioles in a weekend series.
Sunday, Sep. 25 – 1:00pm ET at Miami
Let’s start the division off right with a win over the Dolphins. Start your weekend in South Florida with the Marlins as they host the Nats Friday. On Saturday, “Da U” hosts Middle Tennessee State. I’ll bet you’ll see Jim Kelly on the sidelines.
Sunday, Oct. 2 – 1:00pm ET at Baltimore
Start your week down in Washington on Friday and catch some baseball as the Phillies visit the Nats. On Saturday, take the train to College Park for a B1G battle as Maryland host Michigan State. Then head up to Baltimore for the Ravens vs Bills on Sunday. Extend the weekend by sticking around to see the Jays as they visit the Orioles in Camden Yards on Monday.
Sunday, Oct. 9 – 1:00pm ET
There’s not much else happening yet, but you can bet the Bills are looking to exact revenge for last year’s season opener loss. Check back when the NHL schedule is released to see if the Sabres are in action. If not, take a trip to Niagara Falls or add a Wing Tour to your weekend with stops at Bar Bill, Nine-Eleven Tavern, Duffs, and the Anchor Bar!
Sunday, Oct. 16 – 4:25pm ET at KC
KC is touted as one of the best tailgating venues in the league. Unfortunately, there are no other college games nearby. Maybe the Royals will be in the playoffs. Regardless, make the trip, eat some of their famous BBQ, drink their beer, beat the Chiefs, and enjoy the bye week ahead.
Sunday, Oct. 30 – 8:20pm ET
If you’re traveling back for this game, make the trip to Syracuse on Saturday for the Orange as they host the Fighting Irish. You’ll have time to recover for the Sunday night primetime battle with the Packers. Stick around for Monday night’s hockey matchup of the Wings at the Sabres.
Sunday, Nov. 6 – 1:00pm ET at Jets
Start the weekend with some B1G action as the Michigan Wolverines visit Rutgers in Piscataway. While you’re there, check out the Texas Wieners up in Paterson. A local treat!
You might be able to swing into the city to catch the Rangers as they host Detroit on Sunday evening.
Sunday, Nov. 13 – 1:00pm ET
Catch an ACC matchup on Saturday over in Syracuse as Florida State visits the Orange. Sure it’s a bit of a drive, but you can stop at Nick Tahou’s in Rochester on the way back for a famous Garbage Plate. Or, stay home and catch the Sabres and the Bruins on Saturday night.
Sunday, Nov. 20 – 1:00pm ET
Finally, the UB Bulls are in town to host Joe Moorhead’s Akron Zips on Saturday. Moorhead will definitely challenge for a MAC title this year. Then catch the Battle of Lake Erie on Sunday. Will Deshaun be playing? If the Sabres are more your speed, head up to Toronto on Saturday night for a match against the Leafs.
Thursday, Nov. 24 – 12:30pm ET at Detroit
The Bills on Thanksgiving are starting to be a trend. After a short week, Buffalo travels to the other Lake Erie team to take on the Lions. Start your weekend on Wednesday as the Wings host the Preds. Stick around on Friday for a directional Michigan game as Central Michigan visits Eastern Michigan.
Thursday, Dec. 1 – 8:15pm ET at New England
Back-to-back primetime games again as the Bills visit the evil empire for another Thursday night clash. The Bruins host the Stanley Cups Champs on Saturday.
Sunday, Dec. 11 – 1:00pm ET
Back home to take on the Jets. Start your weekend on Friday as the Sabres host the Pens.
Saturday, Dec. 17 – Time TBA
Nothing else happening at the moment, but a late-season trip to see them squish the division rival fish is well worth the trip itself. I’ve seen this matchup live twice – once in the early Kelly vs Marino years, a boring 9-6 win for the Bills, and once in 2012 in a game that opened with a Leodis McKelvin punt return for a touchdown and resulted in another Bills win 19-14.
Saturday, Dec. 24 – 1:00pm ET at Chicago
Christmas Eve in Chicago! Spend some last-minute shopping along the Miracle Mile then take in the Bills as they visit the Windy City for only the seventh time in franchise history! The Bears hold an 8-5 record in the series. The Blackhawks take on the Blue Jackets on Saturday night.
Monday, Jan. 2 – 8:30pm ET at Cincinnati
One final primetime game before closing out the season at home. While you’re there, grab some Cincinnati Chili to warm you up then watch the Bills lock down home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Sunday, Jan. 8 – Time TBA
Let’s hope this turns into a late-season bye week for us. If not, check out the Sabres vs Minnesota on Saturday night, then watch the Bills secure home-field throughout the playoffs on Sunday!
There’s your 2022 Bills Schedule. There are a couple of great options to see them on the road this year. Which are you planning?
