Preseason game previews 8.19.10

Two preseason games tonight:

The Bills and Colts face each other in Toronto, and the Patriots and Falcons, after spending some quality practice time together the past few days, will meet at the Georgia Dome in a nationally-televised game on Fox.

That means we have two questions apiece for each squad as they head into their second exhibition game.


1)How will QB Brian Brohm perform? In Buffalo’s first preseason game, Trent Edwards started, and Ryan Fitzpatrick was the second man in. Tonight, Edwards will start and Brohm will back him. My question: why not just start Brohm and see what you’ve got?

2)Can C.J. Spiller stay healthy? He’d better. If not, he’ll join fellow RBs Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch on the sideline. Then, who would Buffalo play?


1)Will backup QB Curtis Painter play any better? Because in the first game, he was brutal, and fans aren’t happy.

2)Will S Bob Sanders play at all? Although he’s feeling better than he has the past few years, I wouldn’t expect to see him. No reason to push him too hard in the preseason. At some point, though, you’d like to see him get back on the field.


1)How will the secondary look against Tom Brady? In practice, the Falcons struggled against him and WR Randy Moss. Atlanta’s DBs have been awful the past half-decade. They’ll need to make progress at some point, right?

2)How will WR Brian Finneran look? The Falcons might actually need him this year. Will he continue to progress even as he enters his mid-30s?


1)Will we see WR Wes Welker for the first time? He’s on the trip to Atlanta, so that’s a positive sign. I would say he’s 50-50. Pregame reports say he’s fully dressed. So maybe he will play.

2)Will Brandon Spikes continue to make a push to start at LB? Spikes has performed well with Gary Guyton trying to rehab an injury. If Spikes continues to play well, he could beat out Guyton.
