The Buffalo Bills are set to play the most important game of the preseason this Sunday against Buffalo legend Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Two weeks from now Buffalo Bills fans will be gearing up for the first weekend of the regular season. The tailgates may even start Friday at 5:01.

But first fans will get a dose of some meaningful preseason action this Sunday.

The main story surrounding the game is the fact Josh Allen is starting for the Bills. But another angle that will be talked about is Andy Dalton, who has become a hero after helping the Bills reach the playoffs last season.

Bills fans donated to Dalton’s charity and now the quarterback and his wife are making a donation in Buffalo. And since it is a preseason game Dalton is surely going to get a loud ovation when he makes his way onto the field.

It is a unique storyline and one that is nice and lighthearted for a change.

We look at that and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.
