Meat of the schedule; recent December home record

The Bills will likely find out a lot about themselves from Week Five to Week 10 in the 2012 season.

Check out this stretch: Start with a trip to San Francisco -- which was an overtime from the Super Bowl last season -- in Week Five. Either take a cross-country flight home, or stay out west, which might be a better idea because Week Six takes the Bills to Arizona.

After that, it's a home game against Tennessee in Week Seven followed by the bye week. The schedule picks right back up after that, however, with visits to AFC South champion Houston and then finally a visit to Buffalo's own House of Horrors, New England, in Week 10.


Four of Buffalo's five games are at home (well, three of them are, and one is in Toronto).

The Bills face a tough task in selling those games out. Buffalo's attendance for its three December games in 2011: 56,643 (Dec. 4 vs. Tennessee), 60,988 (Dec. 11 vs. Miami) 45,112 (Dec. 24 vs. Denver).

The only hope Buffalo has in seeing better gates is to improve the product on the field. During the 12 playoff-less seasons, Buffalo's home record in December and early January is 11-16 at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
