The Buffalo Bills (3-0) are set to close out the preseason when the Minnesota Vikings (3-0) come to New Era Field for a 7 p.m. game Thursday.

Like most NFL teams, both the Bills and Vikings appear set to rest the majority of their starters during Week 4 of the NFL’s tedious preseason slate of games.

That means one thing: Fans should get ready to see a quarterback showdown between undrafted rookie free agent Tyree Jackson and some combination of Sean Mannion and Kyle Sloter for the Vikings.

Despite the starters sitting, there are still plenty of reasons to tune in to the preseason finale, beginning with this: With a victory, the Buffalo Bills will secure their first undefeated preseason campaign in franchise history.

Besides watching the Bills go for history, there are countless roster battles to be sorted out on both sides as players make one last push for a spot on the 53-man rosters.

Here’s everything you need to know about in order to watch and/or listen to the preseason finale.
