After their first preseason game against the Detroit Lions, the Buffalo Bills have position groups that looked good and others that did not look good. The hosts, Jamie D’Amico and Big Chris Newton, provide their take on which groups are trending and why.

But first, the question arises as to why some players play well in practice but not games, and vice versa.

Here are the position groups we looked at this week:

  • Cornerback
  • Running back
  • Linebacker
  • Tackle
  • Safety
  • Receiver
  • Defensive line

Finally, the hosts have a major gripe with the NFL Top 100 list with Tre’Davious White and Cole Beasley showing up at numbers 95 and 96 respectively. Big Newt believes this is pure disrespect and Jamie D agrees, going farther as to say there’s still a pro-New England Patriots bias.

And finally, Big Newt just bought Madden NFL 22.
