2010 Buffalo Bills Schedule

billsBuffalo fans are hoping for a lot more out of the team this season and the 2010 Buffalo Bills Schedule looks like it could be a tough one. The Buffalo Bills tabbed a last-place finish in the AFC East division with a 6-10 record in 2009 after expectation were high and anything but a playoff berth would be seen as a failure. After the unsuccessful season, the Bills now come into 2010 with the intention of making it back to the post-season and becoming a factor in both the AFC East division and AFC Conference.

The Bills hired head coach Chan Gailey to come in and make their aspirations a reality. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will likely be the starter come opening weekend, but Gailey has insisted that the quarterback positions remains an open competition.

The Buffalo Bills 2010 NFL Schedule will present a tall-task for them looking ahead, at least on paper prior to the start of the season. They will face the NFC North in their out-of-conference schedule, which includes both Green Bay and Minnesota who made the playoffs and Chicago and quarterback Jay Cutler. In addition the their own division, they will also face the AFC North, that includes Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and Baltimore.
