The Buffalo Bills and the Carolina Panthers will face-off in their first preseason game tonight at 7:00 PM EST at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, NY.
This game will help the Bills determine whether Matt Cassel deserves a secure spot as their starting quarterback for the upcoming season. Other players such as Bryce Brown and Marquise Goodwin will also have a chance to grab a spot on the roster come September based on their performances during the preseason, starting tonight.
The Panthers’ of course are looking to win the game, but more importantly they want to avoid losing anymore players to the injury list that includes Johnson with an injured calf, Lotulelei whom will be missing from the defensive line and Silatolu whom will be absent from the offensive line. Cam Newton and the rest of the starters will be doing what they can in the first quarter before the backups come in to fight for roster spots.
Commentators Rob Stone and Steve Tasker will be the voices of the game on television, along with announcers John Murphy, Mark Kelso and Sal Capaccio. You can also listen to the game on the radio on these stations: WGR 550 (Buffalo), WCMF 96.5 and 950AM (Rochester), WKRL 100.9 (Syracuse), Fan 590 (Toronto) and the rest of the Buffalo Bills Radio Network.
