Last year due to the pandemic, the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the league didn’t play any preseason games. This clearly wasn’t a big deal for the Bills as they would go on to have one of their best seasons in recent history with an AFC East title and a trip to the AFC Championship Game.
However, the lack of preseason games did have an impact, specifically for players towards the end of the roster that might not see much playing time during the regular season. The preseason is a time for these players to get onto the field, play live snaps and give fans a chance to see some of these players outside of practices.
This coming season there will be preseason but it will look different than in past years. This season the league has decided to cut the preseason from four games to three games. The Bills will be traveling for their first two games, playing the Detroit Lions in the first game and Chicago Bears the following week. They will then return home to play the Green Bay Packers in the preseason finale.
While looking ahead to the preseason, these are four players that fans should be excited to see play since they didn’t see them play much last season due to the pandemic.
