When was the last time a preseason game generated this much buzz? I wouldn't be surprised if there are 60,000 people in the stands Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. The highlight, of course, will be rookie quarterback Josh Allen working with the starters – an excellent opportunity for him to win the starting role for the season …
