An exciting weekend in Canton for the Buffalo Bills, highlighted by Andre Reed’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, has come to an end.

Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game wasn’t quite as enthusing for the Bills, who lost 17-13 to the New York Giants, but the first preseason game should always come with its ups and downs. The good news for the Bills is that the loss, even though they tried to win, won’t matter at all when the regular-season games begin.

It’s important to remember that just one game into the preseason—there’s still four more exhibition games to go but the games that matter begin—it’s still way too early to jump to conclusions about any players. Young, inexperienced players are expected to have some hiccups early in the preseason.

With that being said, there were members of the Bills whose performances from Sunday night deserve praise, while there were others who need to be better to make positive contributions his fall.

The New York Giants won Sunday night’s Hall of Fame Game, 17-13, over the Buffalo Bills.

The good news for the Bills is that the Hall of Fame Game is just the first of five preseason games, meaning not only that tonight’s result is meaningless to the regular season, but also that the Bills have four games to improve upon the things that didn’t work well.

Check out all the live blog posts from the night to see who stood out and who struggled from the first quarter to the fourth.

At a position where 30 years of age is often cited to be the “magic number,” it’s very rare to see a 33-year-old running back land a contract extension. But that’s exactly what Fred Jackson did with the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday.

According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jackson’s extension is for one year, worth $2.6 million with an additional $1 million in incentives. The new deal will keep Jackson, who was slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, with the team through 2015.

The NFL announced Wednesday that Bradham will suspended for one game, Buffalo’s season opener versus the Chicago Bears, for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
