Things that may interest only me

Over the past few years of watching ESPN’s NFL Primetime I’ve realized that they always use the same background music for Buffalo Bill’s highlights (it happens to be my favorite piece of music on the show). I haven’t noticed any other team having a signature piece. So, people, how long has that piece been used with Buffalo and why does ESPN do it?

Opponents through 2009

Wednesday, September 21st, 2005

With the re-alignment after the NFL expanded to 32 teams, the opponents of fourteen of the sixteen regular season games are entirely set by formula. Below is the list, omitting divisional games. An abbreviation like “AFCN” means “some AFC North team, determined by the previous year’s finishes”. Home games are before the “|”, away games are after it.

  • 2006: HOU, IND, CHI, DET, AFCW | JAX, TEN, GB, MIN, AFCN
  • 2007: CLE, PIT, PHI, WAS, AFCW | BAL, CIN, DAL, NYG, AFCS
  • 2008: DEN, KC, ARI, STL, AFCN | OAK, SD, SF, SEA, AFCS
  • 2009: JAX, TEN, ATL, CAR, AFCN | HOU, IND, NO, TB, AFCW
