Sports leagues around the world have been canceling games since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak in the spring.

The National Football League, to this point, has not had to do that, due to their fall schedule. However, according to Pro Football Talk, it looks like the NFL is eliminating a couple of preseason games.

Week One and Week Four will be the preseason weeks that are scrapped, per source.

If the games being scrapped do turn out to be the matchups in Weeks 1 and 4, the Buffalo Bills would have two home games and no road games in the preseason. Those matchups were Aug. 14 against the Baltimore Ravens and Sept. 3 versus the Detroit Lions.

It is unclear, at this point, whether one of those road games will be moved in place of the Bills' home preseason games versus the Indianapolis Colts and Atlanta Falcons.
