The Buffalo Bills entered this preseason game with an eight-game win streak in the preseason that continued from the prior years. That win streak looked to be in jeopardy early as the Bills would be 24-10 midway through the fourth quarter.

However, Matt Barkley would be able to lead the offense on three consecutive scoring drives starting with two touchdowns. The final drive would end in a 46-yard field goal from Tyler Bass as time expired.

While the win is nice, and the Bills move their win streak to nine, these are some quick observations from Buffalo’s first preseason game.

Ken Dorsey upstairs in the booth

One of the questions for the Buffalo Bills is where Ken Dorsey might call plays this year. The previous offensive coordinator, Brian Daboll, was upstairs in the booth for the final few years with the Bills while Dorsey, who was quarterback coach, was on the sideline with Josh Allen.

Now with Dorsey taking over for Daboll, he didn’t have a decision made earlier this offseason about where he would be for the regular season. However, after being in the booth for the ‘Return of the Blue & Red’ scrimmage and also this preseason game, it seems like Dorsey likely will be upstairs this season.
