According to an Aug. 3 BuffaloBills.com report, Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio, will be the site for the annual (NFL preseason 2014) Hall of Fame Game. This year, it’ll be the New York Giants battle the Buffalo Bills in a contest that will be televised nationally (TV schedule) on NBC with English and Spanish (en vivo) audio and streaming live and free on NBC Live Extra (online).
Opening kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. Eastern Time (7 p.m. CT/6 p.m. MT/5 p.m. PT) on NBC (Miami-6) following the conclusion of “WrestleMania: The World Television Premier”. For those watching online, NBC Live Extra will host a free live stream beginning at the top of the hour with great camera angles and additional features.
As reported by NJ.com on Aug. 3, tonight will be the first opportunity for Giants fans to witness their team’s newest offensive scheme. With first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo at the helm, the G-Men will showcase a different offense for the first in over a decade of New York football.
For Buffalo, a USA Today (Aug. 3) report highlights how important it is for Bills quarterback EJ Manuel to remain healthy in 2014. Entering his second year as a pro, the former FSU Seminole understands this team will rely on his ability to stay on the field in order to try and end a 14-year playoff-less drought.
“I definitely feel that expectation,” Manuel recently said in an interview. “This is a quarterback-driven league. Plain and simple, the teams that have good quarterbacks make it to the playoffs. But I don't see it as pressure, because I want to do well. If I didn’t want to do well, then it would be pressure because I’d be doing something I don’t want to do.”
