With the National Football League set to release its schedule for the 2020 season later Thursday night, there have already been some leaks for the Buffalo Bills' 2020 regular season schedule.

Earlier on Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that the Bills and the New York Jets will open the 2020 NFL regular season in Orchard Park at New Era Field.

Brian Costello from the New York Post confirmed Mehta's report shortly after:

It would be the second-straight year and third time in the last four seasons that the Bills and Jets have opened the season against one another.  

The Bills beat the Jets in New Jersey last season, 17-16 after trailing 16-0.  

In 2017, Buffalo beat New York 21-12 in Orchard Park in Sean McDermott’s first game as the Bills' head coach. 

As for the rest of the schedule, the Bills have had a few more of their divisional matchups leaked leading up to the 7:30 p.m. reveal.

According to Armando Salguero from the Miami Herald, the Bills will travel to South Florida to take on the Miami Dolphins for their first road trip of the season in Week 2.

Bradley Gelber from USA TODAY Sports' The Bills Wire reports the team's other two home games against their AFC East rivals will take place on Sunday, Nov. 1 against the New England Patriots, and on Sunday, Jan. 3 against the Dolphins.

In addition, Ryan Talbot from newyorkupstate.com reports that the Bills will host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, Dec. 13 at New Era Field.

Finally, a league source the Bills has informed WGR that the team will play “multiple” primetime games this season. However, no dates or matchups have leaked on those primetime games to this point.

Be sure to tune in for live coverage of the NFL schedule release with Nate Geary and Joe DiBiase on WGR starting at 7 p.m.
