DANA POINT, Calif. -- The Buffalo Bills will open their regular season Sept. 14 on "Monday Night Football" against the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium.

Tom Brady will be playing his first game since suffering a left knee injury on opening day last year. Terrell Owens will be making his Bills debut.

"That'll be unbelievable," Bills head coach Dick Jauron said. "I'm really excited about that. It's terrific news for us, terrific news for our fans."

The NFL announced their opening-weekend primetime games Monday afternoon at the annual owners' meeting, which began Monday morning and runs through Wednesday at the St. Regis Hotel.

The Bills-Patriots opener is part of the 50-year celebration of the AFL. The Bills and Patriots will wear their throwback uniforms. The second game will feature the San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders at 10:15 p.m. ET.
