The Buffalo Bills will have a nine-game schedule at Ralph Wilson Stadium this season.  The Bills will play one regular season game at Rogers Centre in Toronto as part of the Bills Toronto Series.  The preseason game originally planned for Rogers Centre will be moved to Ralph Wilson Stadium due to scheduling conflicts at the Toronto venue.

Construction has begun on the Ralph Wilson, Jr. Pro Football Research and Preservation Center at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  The new center will be a 10,800-square-foot addition coupled with the renovation of an existing 6,000-square-foot space that will enable the proper preservation and storage of the Hall of Fame’s comprehensive and growing collection of pro football artifacts, documents and archive materials relating to the history of pro football. The Ralph Wilson, Jr. Pro Football Research and Preservation Center will also enhance the Hall of Fame’s ability to use the collection to educate the public about pro football, its origins, and its impact on society and to provide improved access to pro football researchers, historians, and fans.
