Prep time doesn't matter. What matters is prep time compared to KC. Before it was the same for both teams, now kc gets two more days than the bills. 

All that is true...but there is also the chance that KC comes out rusty, and Air Allen can take advantage early on///

This seems absurd. You may be playing on Tuesday vs Tenn and then Sunday vs KC. But also be prepared to play just next Thursday vs KC. So if your prepping for a TENN game how can you also still prep f

They should move the Chiefs Bills game to the Monday night slot!

Have not that I've heard.  Expect they're gonna wait and see if the Titans game goes down or if we skip them and move on to Thursday and the Chiefs.

 

 

But then the Bills will have had way more time between games. UNFAIR!!! 🥵

The Titans game is technically not a primetime game.   It will only be shown in local markets compared to the usual national broadcasts of Thursday, Sunday and Monday night games.  The Bills Chiefs game better be primetime next week.  Otherwise we lose a primetime game.

Prepare for a short week until it happens? If you have injuries the prior week, how do you do that. The games come one at a time. That's the way they are played.

 

Not sure what you mean by the bolded. You control the things you can control. When things are out of your control, you do the best you can and don't make excuses. Things are rarely 100% fair. This is a particular challenging season, given Covid. There will be some inequities when the things to sideways. 

 

Would you be pleading the Chiefs case should the Bills get this week off and they actually play Thursday? 

Nope. Because the chiefs are already preparing for us. They don’t have another game. Playing us Thursday was always on the schedule. Should it be pushed to the weekend they get even more time to prepare. You’re comparing completely different scenarios. 
 

You’re correct injuries are a part of the game. However when you are forced to lose time between games, those players are at a disadvantage because of another team’s blunder. 
 

There are things that may seem out of someone’s control. Doesn’t mean they are.  But laying down sure solves all problems.

They get to have their ass handed to them by the Bills, and possibly on national television.

really happy the bills have player and coach and system continuity from the last couple years.   they will need it to get through this.   titans should be forfeiting the game IMO.

Trying to back up and take a deep breath....

 

Everybody gets tested.  At any point, through something that's allowed under the NFL protocols like eating in a restaurant that follows local protocols or attending an allowed religious service, a guy you face off against could test positive the next day. That means there was a chance he was infected when playing against you.  The NFL Infection Control expert viewpoint is that contacts during a Tackle football game are too brief to pose an infection risk, but there's no certainty.   Players had all that explained and a chance to opt out pre-season.  It's very promising that there have been no positive tests on the Vikings and so far none on the Bills from squaring off against Hurst. 

 

I'm very glad the game is postponed 'til Tuesday to give more time for any positive tests to emerge, rather than saying "negative Friday, Saturday: Sunday GO!".  I think it's the right call to say "any more positive tests, It's Off on Tuesday."  I repeat: I think the NFL made the right call.

 

At some point, players and teams have to trust the infection control protocols that the league has put in place, do what they're supposed to do for their own infection control like mask up and wash hands, and then let go.  For those who are religious, "Let Go, and Let God".

 

As far as the Stadium, I doubt the Titans ever come near the visitor locker room and they haven't been in the stadium since Sept. 25th, before they travelled to Minny.  I trust our crew to clean the hell out of the visitor locker room and sideline and make sure it's safe.  I'm sure they'll do an extra-thorough job.  Just stay in the hotel and if you want local food, Grubhub, guys.

 

 

I'd rather have the game played at a neutral site though.  If I was a player I wouldn't want to even breathe Tennessee air.

Interesting take.  Stuff happens.  Snowstorms.  Tornados.  Hurricaines.  When stuff happens, winners adapt and whiners collapse.

 

I think the Bills are winners.

Adapting works. Correct. Not saying the Bills won’t be prepared. And I still think we beat the Titans. Just don’t want any excuses should any of the team get sidelined because of something that could have been taken care of better by the league.

Faulty calendar? The Chiefs are (or should be) preparing for the Raiders at this time, not the Bills. Won't start preparing for them until Monday. If the Bills find out before Sunday they are playing on Thursday, they have extra days to prepare.

 

As far as coaching prep, I'm guessing the Bills have been doing that prep for awhile.

Does anyone know if the Chiefs Sunday game will be a day time game or prime time slot?  Have they said the time yet?  

 

Likely will be broadcast by Fox since they had the Thursday night game?  Fox has the doubleheader game that day, but it's Green Bay at Tampa so they won't dump that one.  The Sunday night game is Rams at San Fran another good one so I'd bet it being a 1:00 game on Sunday.  While Buffalo KC should be a very good one, can't see them dumping either of those other games.

 

If the game does stay on CBS likely a 1:00 but if instead it's a 4:05 either way will only be a regional game, unless they go to some special thing like week 17 where both networks get a doubleheader game.  But to that Fox I'd imagine would have to get something in return.

Then you'll complain the Bills had an advantage?  

 

Come to think of it, the Bills have probably already started prepping a bit for the Chiefs, knowing the Titans game is still up in the air.

The Chiefs play at 1 on Sunday. They won’t begin preparing for us until Wednesday, as long as it stays this way.

I am wondering if the NFL needs to cancel all Thursday games— ie, move them all to Sunday. With all the covid changes in the schedules that will inevitably happen, the Thursday games will just make it harder to move games by a day or two, and make quick schedule changes. 

I have no idea why they decided to do them this Covid year.

 

Well I guess I do $$$$

 

but it just seems like such a bad idea.

Fox wouldn't allow it.
