The Buffalo Bills are just 4-15 SU and 5-14 ATS over their last 19 preseason games, dating back to September 2010. The Bills will try to turn their preseason misfortunes around on Thursday night when they visit the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium.
In Week 1 of the 2015 NFL preseason, Matt Cassel got the start at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. When the team visits the Cleveland Browns on tonight, it will be Tyrod Taylor’s turn to take the reins as Buffalo searches for its No.1 signal caller.
Three quarterbacks are technically competing for the Bills’ starting job, though it appears to be a two-man race. Both Cassel and Taylor took reps with the first-team offense this week, heading into Week 2 of the preseason.
Buffalo is a 3-point underdog on Thursday at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The Cleveland Browns are a 3-point favorite but are 0-6 SU and 3-3 ATS in their last six games overall including last season and this preseason.
The Browns lost Justin Gilbert to a hip flexor on Tuesday night and receiver Terrelle Pryor to an aggravation of his hamstring injury on Monday night. By the time the Browns boarded the train for Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon, they had at least 17 players on the injured list.
But the Bills are just as banged up heading into the this nationally-televised clash on ESPN. Linebacker Ty Powell suffered a torn ACL during the first practice and is out for the season. Running back LeSean McCoy injured a hamstring on Tuesday night and will likely be out a couple of weeks.
So the goal for both teams will be to emerge from the game as healthy as possible.
Both the Bills and the Browns come into this game with something to prove. Ryan will be evaluating position battles at both quarterback and running back, and Manziel will be looking to show that he can be a starting quarterback in Cleveland.
