Bills treating prime time matchup same as any other game

The Bills made a big splash at the trade deadline Tuesday when they acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin for a third and seventh round pick in next year's NFL draft.

And although the Bills haven't said anything regarding his playing status yet, it appears as though he'll at least be on the field and in uniform. Benjamin has been assigned the number 13 with the Bills, the same number he wore in Carolina.

If he does play, he'll make his debut in prime time. Buffalo plays the AFC East rival Jets on Thursday Night Football. But the players on the team aren't getting caught up in the spotlight that comes with playing on national television.
