Buffalo (0-3) has been stampeding rather lightly thus far in the 2012 exhibition campaign, going winless in three attempts. That included the 38-7 drubbing they received from the Steelers last Saturday. Look for Bills head coach Chan Gailey to play starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick some, searching for continuity from the offense prior to the start of the regular season on September 9th against the Jets. Newcomer QB Tavaris Jackson should see some snaps as well after being acquired by the Bills from Seattle on Monday. Jackson will now compete with Tyler Thigpen for the Bills backup QB role. Buffalo cut Vince Young on Tuesday.
Detroit (1-2) has fared only slightly better than the Bills this preseason, after falling to the Raiders 31-20 last week. More importantly they received a scare when star QB Matthew Staffords hand came into contact with a Raiders helmet and he was forced from the game. X-rays were negative and they hope he will be ready for the regular season opener against St. Louis. Obviously, he will not play in this one.
In their last regular season meeting in December 2010, the Bills narrowly won at home, 14-12. The Bills lead the season series since 2001, winning twice and dropping one game. Start your NFL Preseason Betting action on Bills vs. Lions Game.
