The Buffalo Bills are hoping for a better time with the second Bills Toronto series. The 4-7 Bills might be in luck as they welcome the 2-9 Atlanta Falcons to Rogers Centre for a 4:05 pm kickoff.
The Falcons have already been eliminated from playoff competition. The Bills are still alive in a weaker AFC.
The Bills are coming off a bye week and a strong 37-14 win over the New York Jets.
The Beach Boys are the halftime act.
Atlanta Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff is Canadian.
Last year's attendance of 40,770 was considerably smaller than previous years at Rogers Centre. The Falcons are not a natural rival -- the fourth straight NFC rival in the Bills Toronto series. And being forced to have the games later in the season means the Bills are usually out of playoff contention by the Toronto game.
The Bills haven't made the playoffs since 1999. Their Hamilton CFL cousins had as long a streak of making the Grey Cup. Except the Tiger-Cats made the Grey Cup in 2013; the Bills would be fortunate just to reach the playoffs.

Dick Stockton and Ronde Barber will call the 4:05 kickoff on Fox. Canadian viewers can watch the game on the Rogers Sportsnet regional channels (East, Ontario, West, Pacific). U.S. viewers in the Atlanta and Buffalo territories plus Cleveland and Jacksonville can watch the game on Fox.
