Bills vs. Vikings live chat, NFL preseason Week 2: first half open thread

Kevin Kolb gets the start tonight against the Minnesota Vikings as he tries to make his case for the starting quarterback job. We're talking about the first half of Bills/Vikings right here.

In just about a half-hour, the Buffalo Bills will take on the Minnesota Vikings at Ralph Wilson Stadium in each team's second preseason game of the 2013 season. This is your spot to talk about the events of the first half as they unfold.

The big story of the evening, of course, is that veteran Kevin Kolb will get his chance to make his case for the starting quarterback job, as he'll take the start tonight over rookie EJ Manuel (who will, of course, operate the second-team offense). A strong outing from Kolb could intensify the battle for the No. 1 job heading into next week's important preseason game in Washington; then again, a sluggish performance could seal the job up for Manuel.

I am at the stadium tonight, so MRW will be your tour guide for the evening. Enjoy the game, friends, and go Bills!
