The Buffalo Bills will be looking to open the newly renovated Ralph Wilson Stadium with a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They will get that chance Saturday afternoon in front of a sellout crowd, as many in Western New York didn't want to wait for the regular season to see the improvements made to the stadium.

The only negative heading into the game is that fans may have to wait another week to see the team's biggest addition, as rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been dealing with a rib injury suffered against the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend. The injury does not seem serious, but the team is erring on the side of caution with the regular season a little over two weeks away.

If Watkins is out, there are still plenty of storylines to watch, in particular the revamped offensive line and if EJ Manuel can finally get his first touchdown pass of the preseason. 

Saturday afternoon's game kicks off at 4:30 p.m. ET, so be sure to check back and join us for live updates and analysis throughout the course of the game.
