DAILY REPORT
– The NFL announced yesterday that Buffalo will square off against the Giants in the annual Hall of Fame game, which kicks off the NFL season. The game will be at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday Aug. 3rd at Canton’s Fawcett Stadium. For the Bills it’s the fourth time they’ll appear in the Hall of Fame game, with their last appearance coming in 2009 when they faced the Titans to help mark the 50th anniversary of the AFL. Buffalo also had a tie-in to the weekend’s enshrinements as founder and owner Ralph Wilson was inducted as well as all-time sack leader Bruce Smith. This summer, the Bills will again have a Hall of Fame inductee in all-time leading receiver Andre Reed. The Giants – who will play in their fifth Hall of Fame game and first since 2002 – will also be represented with DE Michael Strahan a member of this year’s Hall of Fame class.

The Bills and New York Giants will square off in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, August 3rd at 8 PM. Former Bills WR Andre Reed will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame that same weekend. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Eric Wood, Buffalo Bills Center with BuffaloBills.com
On playing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame game:
“Being in Canton as a rookie while Mr. Wilson was being inducted into the Hall of Fame was an honor. It was awesome for me going back to a stadium to play my first time in a Bills uniform where I played in two high school state championships. This year will be fun to be there in Canton while Andre Reed, a great player for the Bills and a guy I have become friends with, is inducted into the Hall of Fame.”
