The preseason has (mercifully) come to an end after the Buffalo Bills pulled off the improbable 28-27 come-from-behind victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 4 of the NFL preseason.

Thanks to a resilient effort from AJ McCarron, who guided Buffalo to four fourth-quarter touchdowns after a disastrous start, Buffalo evened its preseason record at 2-2.

On the latest edition of the Buffalo Rumblings Podcast, co-hosts John Boccacino and Anthony Marino offered up their thoughts on what they liked and what they didn’t like from the dramatic win over the Bears.

With teams having to reduce their rosters to 53 by 4 p.m. Saturday, they also offer up their thoughts on who has done enough to cement a roster spot, and who could have played their final snaps for the Bills.

The biggest competitions for roster spots appears to be at:

  • Wide receiver (potential cuts include Corey Coleman, Rod Streater, Ray-Ray McCloud III, and Brandon Reilly)
  • Tight end (Khari Lee, Nick O’Leary, and Logan Thomas are on the bubble);
  • Offensive line (bubble players appear to be Marshall Newhouse, De’Ondre Wesley, Conor McDermott, and Russell Bodine)
  • Defensive end (Mike Love and Terrence Fede on the bubble)
  • Linebacker (Deon Lacey and Tanner Vallejo are most firmly entrenched on the bubble)
  • Cornerback (it appears it’s a two-man race between Breon Borders and Lafayette Pitts for the No. 5 CB role)
  • Punter (we give incumbent Colton Schmidt the edge over Jon Ryan).
