The Chicago Bears close the preseason slate today against the Buffalo Bills, which is fitting because the Bills did something the Bears would like to emulate. Three years ago, Buffalo traded for a number one wide receiver in Stephon Diggs and then watched their third-year quarterback, Josh Allen, flourish and become a Pro Bowler. The Bears hope that D.J. Moore will similarly affect Justin Fields.
Both Fields and Allen will play, but this game will feature plenty of fringe players battling for a roster spot, and that’s why I enjoy the preseason.
Keep in mind that these preseason finales are the last time many of these players will ever wear an NFL uniform, so who are some players you’re hoping to see go out with a bang?
This will be your open thread to discuss the game, and as always, open threads are rated WCG-MA.
