Lions vs Bills Preview

lions vs billsThe Detroit Lions are set to take on the Buffalo Bills on Thursday in the final preseason game for the 2 teams as they both look to get in some last minute preparations before the regular season gets underway next week.

The starters for both the Lions and Bills are unlikely to see much time on the field in order to give players rest before the regular season kicks off, as well as so the teams can get an extended look at players still looking to earn a spot on the 53 man roster.

So far this preseason, the Lions have a 2-1 record, while the Bills have a record of 1-2. Both teams hope to finish off the preseason with a win, providing an extra confidence boost before the regular season gets underway.

The Detroit Lions are looking to improve from last season in a pretty tough NFC North Division that also features the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings. The Bears and the Packers are likely to provide the tougher competition for the Lions in the upcoming season, and the Vikings are also likely improved from their performance last year.

The Bills, in the midst rumors of the franchise being moved, look to enjoy improved success in the AFC East Division where there biggest competition is going to come from the New England Patriots. The Miami Dolphins and New York Jets also find themselves on  the rise and could be tough opponents for the Bills to face. EJ Manuel is also looking to prove that he can be the Bills long term solution at quarterback with his performance this year.

The line on the game is in favor of Buffalo by 4, while the over under for the upcoming game is set at 41.
