Bills vs Broncos Live: After about three weeks of practicing against teammates, the Buffalo Bills will kick off their three-game preseason schedule on August 13th when they play the Indianapolis Colts. They will have one more home preseason game against the Denver Broncos before traveling on the road to play the Carolina Panthers in the preseason finale.
The Buffalo Bills will open the preseason playing the Indianapolis Colts and the two teams have split their last two meetings. The Bills won the matchup in 2020 when they faced the Colts at Highmark Stadium in the AFC Wild Card Round. It was their first playoff win in 25 years.
Then last year, it was the Colts who would hand Buffalo their biggest loss of the season behind Jonathan Taylor’s four rushing touchdowns by a final of 41-16. This was really the only game that the Bills didn’t really have a chance to win late at the end of the game.The Buffalo Bills second preseason game is going to be ‘Kids Day’ at Highmark Stadium and also is probably the most exciting preseason game on the schedule. The second preseason game could be treated as the dress rehearsal for the season for Buffalo and the starters could play the most of any preseason game.
The Bills will be playing the Denver Broncos who made a number of notable changes as they traded for Russell Wilson as well as hired Nathaniel Hackett to be their head coach. Hackett had two stops in Buffalo as he was offensive quality control in 2008 and 2009 and then offensive coordinator for two seasons under Doug Marrone in 2013 and 2014.
This will be the first time, regular season or preseason, that Miller will play against the Denver Broncos. He spent the first 10.5 years of his career with the Broncos after they drafted him second overall in 2011 but was traded during the season to the Los Angeles Rams this past season.The Buffalo Bills’ annual Kids Day festivities are set for August 20 as the Bills host the Denver Broncos for their second home preseason game. The Kids Day game is always the most family friendly event of the year. Presented by Fisher Price, 2022 will be no different as they welcome the littlest fans in a big way.
While the game is set to kick off at 1:00 PM Eastern, the pint-sized tailgating gets started at 9:00 AM Eastern with a DJ Milk dance party. Other activities include a Power Wheels track, inflatables, games, activities, giveaways, and a real firetruck that I assume the kids will not be allowed to drive. Everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic mascot, Billy Buffalo, is also set to appear. Lot 6, to the North of the stadium will be the place to go for all the pre-game fun.
Inside the stadium, look for special concessions to cater to the younger crowd. Ice cream, cotton candy, root beer floats, and a kid’s combo deal complete with a Capri Sun highlight the snack offerings.On the first morning of Bills training camp, quarterback Josh Allen praised the St. John Fisher University turkey burger as a gastronomic feat. New pass rusher Von Miller, meanwhile, referenced the dormitory toilet paper.We were soon reminded how every picayune Bills detail becomes a story these days.The next afternoon, turkey burgers were served in the media dining hall, with the campus executive chef granting interviews. Fans have been shipping Miller deluxe toilet paper and wipes.
The connection between the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers is well-documented with Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane leaving Carolina and joining Buffalo to become head coach and general manager respectively.However, this Panthers team has had plenty of turnover since then and there aren’t many connections left to when McDermott and Beane were with Carolina.The Panthers are entering this season as a team seemingly looking for answers, most notably at quarterback with Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield competing for the job. Both quarterbacks were selected prior to Josh Allen but are now playing for their second team.
Miller delivered one of training camp’s most colorful quips about edge rusher Greg Rousseau, who got into a shoving match with wide receiver Stefon Diggs last Thursday.Greg’s a demon,” Miller said, “and I’m gonna bring it out of him. I’ve been feeding him gunpowder and gasoline at lunch and breakfast. It’s good to see him come out and go crazy.”
