The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Buffalo Bills face off for the all-important third preseason game. Who will win and who will lose? That doesn't really matter, but this is the preseason game where the starters will get most of the playing time and we finally get a halfway decent look at what the teams are likely to do during the regular season.
The Bills are entering their fourth game of the preseason — after playing in the NFL Hall of Fame Game — with a 1-2 record, while the Buccaneers have yet to pick up a win in their first to outings of the preseason.
The 14tth annual Kids Day game, sponsored by Independent Health, presents fans with the first opportunity to see the large-scale Ralph Wilson Stadium renovations in person.
The first 30,000 kids ages 14 and under to enter the gates will receive a pair of Bills sunglasses courtesy of Independent Health. The Kids Day events kick off at 12:30 p.m. in lot 4 with a youth-themed tailgate party including interactive games, face painting, a magician, and the introduction of Stampede, the brand new Buffalo Bills Drum Corp.
