The Buffalo Bills entered the year with a 50% chance of playing on Thanksgiving Day for the first time since 1994. The Detroit Lions are slated to play an AFC team in this year’s annual Turkey Day game in Detroit, and with the Bills and Miami Dolphins the only two AFC teams making trips to the Motor City this year, it gives the Bills pretty good odds.

With the NFL schedule expected to be released in the next couple of weeks, it appears as if the Bills may have let the cat out of the bag when it comes to them playing on Thanksgiving this year.

It’s not a major confirmation of the team playing on Thanksgiving Day, but it’s a pretty hard hint that the it’s going to happen. Why would the team’s official website post about the Bills playing on Thanksgiving if it wasn’t going to be the case? The fact that it is mentioned while talking about the Lions can only make the chances of the team playing on November 27, 2014 seem even more likely.
