Several outlets have reported that the Green Bay Packers will be playing a Monday night game against the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo, this season.

The Bills have apparently let some of the details about their schedule slip today. The full schedule isn’t expected to be released until next week.

So, way to go Bills.

While it’s understandable that the Packers are getting a prime time game, you’re probably wondering why they’d be playing Buffalo.

That’s a damn good question. The Bills haven’t been relevant since I was tearing shit up with Thurman Thomas on Tecmo Super Bowl. They were 6-10 last year.

Typically, prime time games feature, you know, desirable matchups. That is, with the exception of the Thursday night slate, which is a total garbage dump.

The Bills also let it slip that they’re playing the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. Detroit always gets a home game on Thanksgiving because, tradition!

Most of the time they’re playing the Packers in that game. Not this year, apparently.

Although, that’s probably a good thing after last year’s Thanksgiving debacle. The Packers were out of that game by the time I was onto my third Old Fashioned, which was about the beginning of the second quarter.

    please don’t remind me of that Turkey Day Blitzkreig. we actually could of beaten them – we had plenty of Detroit Kitty turnovers early – if only we could have moved the ball even a little bit. then, the momentum kicked in and it blew up. worst Packer game ive seen in years.

    now i need to go watch Rodgers to Cobb against Da Bears again to flush those negative thoughts away. Go Packers

      Same here; I bought a sixer of microbrews at half to aid me in trying to enjoy what would become the Thanksgiving Day Massacre as well as to complement Thanksgiving Dinner. Five of the six never saw the turkey feast and that was with me turning the game off after MM called a pass 3 times in a row from the 1-and-a-half yard line, pretty sure we all know how that ended.

    Detroit loss last year the worst beating since the Patriots in 2006 (35-0). Believe Farve was hurt early and Rodgers played the rest of the game and actually broke his foot during the game.

    Surprised you’re surprised it’s not Lions v Packers on Thanksgiving. It’s been 50 years since the two have played on consecutive Thanksgivings.
