ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — It has been a long eight months without football and an eventful offseason due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but now the wait is over.
The Buffalo Bills will host the New York Jets Sunday at Bills Stadium at 1 p.m. It's the 14th time the teams will face off on opening day — the most common weekend match-up in NFL history.
Head coach Sean McDermott led the Bills to a 4-win improvement last year, which was the team's largest jump since 2001 to 2002. Some obvious next steps for this season would be to win the division and to host and win a playoff game.
The Bills will be without veteran cornerback Josh Norman, who was placed on injured reserve Saturday. The team activated cornerback Cam Lewis and defensive tackle Justin Zimmer from the practice squad.
