With Saturday’s deadline to cut down the roster to the regular-season limit of 53 players, the Buffalo Bills had a busy day Friday. The Bills released 18 players from their roster, while also placing three injured players on the season-ending injured reserve, in order to cut their roster down to 55 players (the roster was at the 75-player limit prior to the 21 moves, but free safety Jairus Byrd’s roster exemption expires Saturday).

Of all four preseason games, the third preseason game is supposed to be the closest to a regular-season game. Most starters around the league play for an entire half during Week 3 of the preseason, as NFL teams try to get their key players ready for regular-season action before resting them for the most part in the final preseason game on Thursday.

If Saturday’s game versus the Washington Redskins was any indication of how the Buffalo Bills will look when the real season begins, the Bills could be in for another long season. The Bills struggled mightily on both sides of the ball Saturday, and lost the game by a final score of 30-7.

That said, there’s no reason to harp on the final score: preseason results are ultimately meaningless and are often misleading. What are significant, however, are the reasons that the Bills ended up giving up so many points and scoring so few, as there were plenty of takeaways from Saturday’s game that could be cause for concern.
