Former Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore provided the first bulletin board material for the season ahead.

Gilmore, who signed a five year contract worth $65 million with the rival New England Patriots during the offseason, took a cheap shot at his former club on Twitter Monday afternoon.

"My people finally get to see me on TV," he wrote.

This season the Patriots have five nationally televised games this season compared the Bills' one, which is a Thursday Night matchup against the New York Jets on Nov. 2.

Since 2009 the Bills have had only two Monday Night Football games.  New England has nine since 2010, including a Week 15 matchup this year against Miami.

Buffalo's last Sunday Night Football game was in 2007 when they faced off against the Patriots, a 56-10 route by New England.

Bills fans responded on social media following the Tweet from Gilmore:
