Rookie quarterback Josh Allen will be with the starters on Sunday, but it’s not the only major story line heading into Sunday’s third preseason game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills.
Thanks to a miraculous 49-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd on a 4th-and-12 play in Week 17 of the 2017 season, the Bills snapped their 17-year playoff drought.
Fans in Western New York showed their gratitude by donating more than $450,000 to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, and Dalton and his wife will present some money to the pediatric department of the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center before Sunday’s 4 p.m. game between the Bengals and Bills at New Era Field.
Aside from the budding friendship between Buffalo and Cincinnati, there are plenty of things to watch when these two AFC foes square off Sunday.
