If you missed Thursday’s Buffalo Bills preseason finale because of the local blackout in Western New York, you didn’t miss much. The Bills fans who watched it might already be trying to erase the game from their memory.
The Bills lost, 23-0, against the Detroit Lions to finish their preseason with a 1-4 record.
Thursday’s score will not matter as the regular season begins next week. Neither will any team’s preseason record. That said, the Bills will need to play drastically better, especially on offense, to have any chance of emerging as a contender and avoid giving the Cleveland Browns a very high selection with the first-round pick they traded to Cleveland in the Sammy Watkins deal this year.
