NFL Moves Bills Monday Night Game Against the 49ers To Arizona
2020 has been a season like no other in the NFL. Quite a few games this season have been pushed back or rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the latest news impacts the Bills Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers.
According to the Buffalo Bills social media accounts, the NFL has announced that the Bills game at the 49ers will now be played at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona -- home of the Arizona Cardinals. It's still scheduled for 8:15 pm EST on Monday, December 7th.
The 49ers' next home game, week 14 against the Washington Football Team, will also be played in Glendale, Arizona.
The reason behind the short notice change of venue is due to Santa Clara County banning contact sports through at least December 21st.
If the new venue sounds familiar, it should. The Bills just played there two weeks ago against the Arizona Cardinals and lost a heartbreaker on a final Hail Mary from Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Still, it will be cool to see the Bills play in the Monday Night Football spotlight. They currently lead the AFC East with an 8-3 record, one game ahead of the Miami Dolphins.
