The Return of the Gameday Prep: Bills at Chiefs

It’s the start of a new season. With the Bills, it’s a big game of “watch and see.” Last year, despite going 4-12, they were successful at being entertaining in close games. Maybe this is the year they’re able to win a few more. The NFL, after all, is a league where there are more poor and mediocre teams than good ones.

Consider this your gameday prep.

Kickoff: 1 p.m. on CBS.

Your Announcers: Marv Albert, Rich Gannon.

Depth Charts: Buffalo. Kansas City.

How to talk to us
Twitter is probably your best bet. Follow Ryan, Chris and Corey for commentary and maybe some analysis. The group email is slower, but we’re always looking for links, videos and other cool stuff to be passed our way.

We’ll be checking the comments section, too, so you can have at it here.

Things Worth Knowing/Mocking/Reading
–The Bills are the best-looking team in the NFL according to the Wall Street Journal.

Deadspin does their own follow-up to the Ryan Fitzpatrick Grantland piece.

–Shawne Merriman could end up being a pretty big deal this season.

–And Marcell Dareus is probably going to be pretty good, too.

–If the defense improves, the addition of coach Dave Wannstedt could be a big reason why.

–The match-up from a Kansas City perspective.

–From the Kansas City Star: Chiefs coach Todd Haley is on the hot seat.

–When we spoke with Tim Graham of the Buffalo News a few weeks ago, he told us that he was in Texas working on a story. That feature — about former Bills tight end Kevin Everett — hits newsstands today. We’re going to go out on a limb and say it’s pretty good.

A Thing Certainly Worth Mocking
“Fantasy Football: Jamaal Charles Has a Great Matchup Against the Buffalo Bills” from…. The Bleacher Report. The picture says it all.
