Bills vs. Bears: five takeaways from Buffalo’s lackluster preseason finale turned comeback win Well the preseason is finally over Womens Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , and the Buffalo Bills will move on to the regular season. (Well, most of them.) As the team contemplates the roster cutdowns, practice squad spots, and more here are our takeaways from the game against the Chicago Bears.0.0 to heroAJ McCarron was auditioning for his next job tonight and he was pretty terrible in the first half. Instead of upping his trade value, he reinforced why he languished on the free agent market for so long. His QB rating was 0.0 for a time in the second half after his two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) and multiple incompletions, but he scampered in for a five-yard fourth quarter touchdown run, and threw three touchdown passes to cap a 25-point final frame.Some roster battles decidedThe Bills sat a lot of players due to the short turnaround from Sunday’s game. Running back Marcus Murphy, tight end Jason Croom Youth Ryan Groy Jersey , and the entire starting offensive line (including both Ryan Groy and Russell Bodine) were among those that didn’t play on offense while the top four cornerbacks were among those sidelined on defense. Young wide receivers not getting a ton of playing timeIt was deep into the game before Malachi Dupre and Robert Foster even saw the field. McCarron threw to them. Austin Proehl got in and didn’t see a target. Brandon Reilly was in on the final drive.Brandon Beane shares on TVDuring the fourth quarter, general manager Brandon Beane joined the television broadcast to answer a lot of questions. While they weren’t hard-hitting with the interviewers wearing Bills logos on their shirts, he did share a lot of information. He said the following:Nathan Peterman helped Brian Daboll unpack his office.He’ll know the final 53-man roster by the time he goes to bed Friday and he will be joined by coach Sean McDermott when they tell guys they are cut.Saturday is the longest day of his year. They get the list of cuts from around the league at 8 p.m. and go through the nearly 1000 names. They’ll leave at 2 a.m., get back at 6:30 a.m. in order to notify the league office by noon on Sunday.He spent a lot of time talking about how things have slowed down for Josh Allen since his rookie minicamp.Quick outsRay-Ray McCloud left the game with four minutes left in the game with a knee injury.Siran Neal had ten tackles.Logan Thomas was in the game deep into the fourth quarter while Nick O’Leary started at tight end.Oh, the Bills beat the Bears, 28-27, and both teams kept calling timeouts and challenging plays late into the fourth quarter of the final preseason game. McCarron’s touchdown pass with 13 seconds left capped a feverish comeback by Buffalo.Buffalo Bills vs. Chicago Bears personnel connections The Buffalo Bills will square off against the Chicago Bears on Thursday hoping to avoid injury above all else. The fourth and final preseason game often prominently features players who are auditioning for a spot on another roster or practice squad. While this year’s preseason finale doesn’t quite have the intimate feel of Buffalo’s traditional preseason closing matchup with the Detroit Lions, there are some connections between the two teams.The head coaches each rose through the NFL coaching ranks together Authentic Zay Jones Jersey , with new Bears head coach Matt Nagy and second-year Bills head coach Sean McDermott starting their NFL careers with Andy Reid’s Philadelphia Eagles. Both men coached under Reid from 2008-2010. Nagy began as a coaching intern (2008-2009) before earning a promotion to coaching assistant for the 2010 season. McDermott was the Eagles’ linebackers coach in 2008 before he as named defensive coordinator, a position he held in 2009 and 2010 before he was fired.Guard Vlad Ducasse and center/guard Ryan Groy each played for the Bears before coming to Buffalo. Ducasse was a Bear in 2015, playing in 15 games and making 11 starts. Groy signed with the Bears as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2014. He made 3 starts for the team and appeared in 4 games overall. Another of Buffalo’s offensive linemen, Jordan Mills, began his career in Chicago, as well. Mills played for the Bears for his first two seasons (2013-2014) after the team drafted him in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Mills was Chicago’s starting right tackle out of the gate, starting 29 of a possible 32 games over his first two seasons. Two assistant coaches have connections to each team, as well. Bills’ linebackers coach Bob Babich was with the Bears from 2004-2012 Womens Marcus Murphy Jersey , serving as linebackers coach from 2004-2006, then as defensive coordinator from 2007-2009, and then again as linebackers coach from 2010-2012. Bears’ tight ends coach Kevin Gilbride is the son of longtime NFL coach (and former Bills’ offensive coordinator) Kevin Gilbride, who was a member of Gregg Williams’ staff from 2001-2003.
