Super Bowl XXV Teams Set To Meet As Bills, Giants Clash In NFL Hall Of Fame Game

Posted by Stan Simmons on 7/30/2014 11:17:56 PM

The 2014 NFL preseason is set to get underway this Sunday with the Hall of Fame game between the Buffalo Bills and New York Giants – a rematch of the two teams that played in Super Bowl XXV. The two franchises have gone down very different paths since meeting in that championship game in 1991, especially of late. The Giants have won two of the last 10 Super Bowls, while Buffalo is facing an extended playoff drought. Both teams are coming off losing seasons, and this game represents another step towards potentially turning the page and putting together a winning record in 2014.

NFL Betting Line: Bills – 2

It’s likely that both head coaches will keep things simple for this game, with Eli Manning expected to be limited to a series, while EJ Manuel opens the game for the Bills. The Hall of Fame game represents an early chance for both coaches to see what they have on their roster before the first round of cuts, which they have to balance with potential injury risk.

NFL Betting Preview: Buffalo Bills

Manuel has had a strong training camp and is ready to take another step forward in his second NFL season. Staying healthy will be a big part of that. Manuel was forced from the lineup a year ago due to injury, but he has worked hard to get himself in the best possible shape for this season. There is continuity on the offense with coordinator Nathaniel Hackett back, and Buffalo added a new weapon with first-round pick wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Head coach Doug Marrone lost his defensive coordinator when Mike Pettine took the head coaching job in Cleveland, and the team also lost a couple of stars on that side of the ball in Jairus Byrd through free agency and Kiko Alonso due to a season-ending injury. Chris Hogan and Seantral Henderson are two names that have had strong camps and are looking forward to the game action, as well as former Eagles’ running back Bryce Brown, who s fighting for touches with CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson.

NFL Betting Preview: New York Giants

The Giants are coming an awful season in which they fell short of every expectation, but there is reason to expect them to bounce back. Manning is healthy, and while he won’t play more than a series in this one, fans will get their first look at future starter Ryan Nassib. Rashad Jennings and Peyton Hillis are the favorites to join David Wilson on the roster at running back, but Wilson is hurt right now, which could open the door for a player like Andre Williams. New York still has some legitimate concerns about the depth at a couple of positions including linebacker, with Spencer Paysinger likely battling with Devon Kennard for that final spot in the middle where Jon Beason is injured.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

These games are always entertaining since they are our first taste of a new season and a chance to get a first look at so many new faces in new places. The Giants are eager to earn a measure of redemption in 2014, but the Bills have the better depth and should be able to get the job done in an otherwise meaningless contest in terms of the final score.
