Gather ’round, my friends, for it is the return of that most hallowed sport of football, however fleetingly interesting and inconsequential in this case.
Bills and Giants fans got to see Andre Reed and Michael Strahan enshrined into the Hall of Fame and now they’ll stick around Canton to watch their teams current starters play for a drive or two.
As is the case with all preseason games, the paramount concern is leaving with all players unscathed by injury. The Bills already lost Kiko Alonso this off-season. They can scarcely afford another key starter going down. The Giants may never get David Wilson back so he can forever dwell in Tom Coughlin’s doghouse because of fumbles. So here’s the remaining at as close to full strength as possible.
In the meantime, Eli Manning is learning a new offense, so hopefully he throws an interception in limited action so the New York media can freak out about his progress.
