Friday Night Preseason Football Open Thread

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Just noticed there's no game thread scheduled for tonight so I'm quickly throwing one up.  For your information, the games are:

Minnesota Vikings v. Buffalo Bills

- Kicked off 7.00pm ET.

Reason to watch: Divisional rival; the Kevin Kolb-E.J. Manuel QB contest.

San Francisco 49ers v. Kansas City Chiefs

- Kickoff 8:00pm ET.

Reason to watch: Colin Kaepernick vs former 49ers starter Alex Smith.  Once the former was the pupil; is he now the master?

Oakland Raiders v. New Orleans Saints

- Kickoff 8:00pm ET.

Reason to watch: We play the Oakland Raiders next week in the dress rehearsal for the regular season; we host the New Orleans Saints in week 5 of the regular season, which will probably be the biggest test for our defense to that point (weeks 1 to 4 go: Bengals - Vikings - Steelers - Lions).

Tampa Bay Buccaneers v. New England Patriots

- Kickoff 8:00pm ET.

Reason to watch: Do the New England Patriots have a passing attack without Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Wes Welker? A lot will come down to how well Danny Amendola and Tom Brady click.

Have fun, and Open Thread responsibly.
