The Bills got their Thursday night game out of the way this week. They lost to the Jets at the Meadowlands, 34-21, with a pair of late Buffalo touchdowns making the score look closer.


ward, Bills veteran guard Richie Incognito gave the NFL an earful for scheduling midweek games, which normally don’t allow players a full week to recover physically from the previous weekend’s game. (USA Today has more on this.)

Was Incognito salty just because the Bills got smoked? Perhaps, but his point is valid in a way: The NFL is in business to make money, and that’s why it has separate TV packages for Thursday, Sunday and Monday night games. Bills-Jets was on NFL Network, but CBS and NBC also show Thursday games (and draw big numbers), so the bean counters will win.
