NFL: "We messed up" on revealing schedule early

By Alan Pergament

After further review, it wasn't the Buffalo Bills who mistakenly put the 2014 regular season schedule on their website Wednesday night about 30 minutes before it was supposed to be released.

"We messed up," said National Football League spokeman Brian McCarthy this morning. "It was a league-wide issue."

He confirmed the league put up the schedule early on the websites of several teams Wednesday, only to be pulled down shortly later before the official release time of 8 p.m.

Several media members on Twitter were quick to blame the Bills for another website error the day after the team mistakenly put up a draft of a story on its website about Coach Doug Marrone having cancer. The error led to the team issuing a statement from Marrone late Tuesday night in which he said he had a cancerous mole removed and that it wouldn't impact his coaching the team.
