Ralph Wilson Stadium, Orchard Park, NY

Bills inactives: WR Roscoe Parrish, WR Donald Jones, WR Naaman Roosevelt, WR Felton Huggins, DT Kyle WilliamsA long and arduous NFL off-season begins its conclusion this evening with 15 pre-season finales, including an Orchard Park visit from the Detroit Lions.

There's plenty on the line for dozens of Buffalo Bills players tonight, as this game represents the final audition for at least 27 players on the current roster that will no longer be there come 6:00 PM this Saturday evening.

Buffalo's starters are expected to get an abbreviated amount of work in - Chan Gailey predicted between six and ten snaps - before sitting down and preparing for the regular season. If you're at Ralph Wilson Stadium tonight, enjoy the starters while they last, because we'll have a whole ten days to wait before we next see them.

This is your open thread for tonight's pre-season finale. Enjoy it, friends. Go Bills!
