Bills and Jets will make history in Week 2

The Bills and Jets Thursday Night Football matchup will make history at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The Buffalo Bills and NY Jets will face off in Week 2. Buffalo's home opener will be played on Thursday Night Football so Bills fans will certainly be buzzing. 

Fans will not only be buzzing about this matchup, but they'll also be tweeting because Buffalo's matchup with the Jets in Week 2 will be the first NFL game to ever be streamed on Twitter.

A partnership between Twitter and the NFL was announced earlier this year and Roger Goodell said the following on the partnership

“Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football”, said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  “There is a massive amount of NFL-related conversation happening on Twitter during our games and tapping into that audience, in addition to our viewers on broadcast and cable, will ensure Thursday Night Football is seen on an unprecedented number of platforms this season. This agreement also provides additional reach for those brands advertising with our broadcast partners.” 

The Jets will be out for revenge after they were swept by the Bills in 2015. In the 2015 season finale, Buffalo's win kept New York from making the playoffs.
