The 2014 NFL preseason kicks-off tonight when the Buffalo Bills vs. New York Giants live stream and TV coverage gets underway from Canton, Ohio. While this game will not feature many of the starters and super-stars for either squad it does officially kick off the 2014 season, and that is plenty enough for NFL fans!
According to a Miami Herald report on August 2, NFL Hall of Fame president David Baker is thrilled with this weekend’s events and excited about the game that will represent the state of New York. It seems fitting that the Giants and Bills are meeting in the HOF classic this season as both sides had a super-star inducted into the hall on Saturday.
Buffalo wide receiver Andre Reed and Giants defensive end Michael Strahan both were inducted Saturday night and will now watch their former teams battle it out on Sunday.
"This is a wonderfully spectacular tradition, one of the greatest in all of sports," said Hall of Fame president David Baker. "Nowhere can fans see so many of the greatest heroes of the game in one place at one time. There's no better way to kick off the NFL's 95th season."
So who will win tonight's opener? NFL fans know this one doesn't count in the standings, but they all count in Las Vegas! Yes, preseason NFL action is wagered on quite a bit in Sin City. Tonight's game has the Buffalo Bills listed at 2.5 point favorites with the over/under number set at 35. These games are too tough to call in the early going, but look for this game to go over the 35 points. Eli and EJ won't be battling it out, however a lot of rookies will be trying to make an impression.
Fans will be able to catch all of the Hall of Fame game action on NBC nationally and streaming live online through NBC Sports Extra. The opening kick-off is scheduled for just after 8 p.m. ET.
