The Buffalo Bills have been game-planning all week for tonight's pre-season game against the Pittsburgh Steelers - one that will feature Bills starters on the field for about 30 plays, and could keep them in action until the early portions of the third quarter. If you're only planning on watching one exhibition game this year, Bills fans, make it this one.
Erik Pears and Mark Anderson will not suit up for Buffalo tonight, meaning that Chris Hairston and Chris Kelsay will start in their place at right tackle and right end, respectively. Meanwhile, at several other positions - like wide receiver and linebacker, for starters - we're bound to learn a little about the depth chart as backups rotate in for starters for a half.
This is your live game thread for tonight's festivities. I'll be up at Ralph Wilson Stadium tonight to catch the game, and with MRW out of commission until tomorrow, we won't have a post-game recap up on the blog until I'm able to get back home from Orchard Park. Until then: go Bills!
