The Buffalo Bills took the field for the first time this weekend, and there was a lot to be impressed by in their 44-20 preseason victory against the Indianapolis Colts. Rookie quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel combined to complete 35-of-44 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions, while the Bills had three takeaways and also scored touchdowns on both defense and special teams.

Here at Buffalo Bills Draft, you can check out our review coverage of the Bills preseason opener, along with the rest of our content from the past week.

Sunday night marked the long-awaited return of the AMC television hit Breaking Bad. While the world awaits the fate of Walter White, Buffalo Bills fans received a brief glimpse into their possible 2013 fate on Sunday afternoon in Indianapolis.

A film review of Sunday’s game has given Buffalo their own version of players who decided, in their season debut with the Bills, to “break bad.” In an effort to remain positive, we will also look at some players who broke bad habits and had a positive debut on Sunday.

Our first installment of “5 Up, 5 Down” for the Bills’ 2013 preseason looks at players who helped or hurt their case to make the Buffalo Bills roster and/or earn greater playing time, although I tried to keep my focus on rookies and players on the bubble to make the team.

Final scores are meaningless in the preseason, but Buffalo Bills fans are wishing that wasn’t the case after the team’s 44-20 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, an AFC playoff team last season, in their preseason opener Sunday.

There was a lot to like about the Bills’ preseason opener Sunday. Rookie quarterbacks EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel combined to complete 35 of 44 passing attempts for 315 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. In addition to their three passing touchdowns, the Bills also scored touchdowns on defense (interception return by Jumal Rolle) and special teams (kickoff return by Marquise Goodwin).

Manuel, Tuel, Rolle and Goodwin were all among the standouts on Sunday’s first slice of game action for the Buffalo Bills’ 2013 season. Let’s go in-depth and take a closer look at what worked — and a little bit of what didn’t — in the Bills’ impressive preseason outing today.

The Buffalo Bills head into their preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts with more at stake than most would expect for an early August scrimmage.

With a new coaching staff and organizational philosophy intact, there are many players who are looking to prove that they belong on the new-look Bills. The first game will be an opportunity for some players brought in by the new regime to warm themselves to the Buffalo faithful, while many returning players will need to prove that they can change with the times and fit into the new schemes.

With the starters set to only play a few possessions, Bills fans will need to turn their eyes to the reserves in order to find the most intriguing story lines. For the following players, the pressure on Sunday might be the most palpable.
