Thankfully, mercifully, another summer of egregious preseason football is behind us.
At least it ended with some fun drama as the Bills somehow rallied from a 27-3 third-quarter deficit to beat the Bears 28-27 on a 6-yard A.J. McCarron to Keith Towbridge touchdown pass with 13 seconds left to play.
Unbelievable, really, when you consider how terribly they played for most of the first three quarters, particularly quarterback A.J. McCarron.
