Report: Fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium due for some MNF fun

A report on Fox Sports Wisconsin said Tuesday the Bills will play host to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football in 2014. It was according to an unidentified source.

The Bills certainly are overdue to play a prime-time game at home. The last time the Bills hosted a MNF game was 2008 against Cleveland. Their last MNF game on ESPN was 2009 at New England. Buffalo has hosted only two MNF games in the last 19 years. The other was a memorable meeting with Dallas in 2007.

Sunday Night Football on NBC generally gets more marquee matchups than Monday Night Football. The Bills have appeared on SNF on NBC only once, in a 2007 game against New England.

Many expect the Bills to play on Thanksgiving Day in 2014 because they will play on the road at Detroit and they haven't played on Thanksgiving Day since 1994.

The NFL schedule is expected to be released at some point in the next three weeks.

    Both times which go a long in explaining WHY the Bills haven't played on Monday Night. But not to worry: if the NFL has their way, they'll soon have a game on every night of the week!
