The Buffalo Bills waited until game day for each of the first two preseason games to announce their starting quarterback. This week, ahead of the matchup with the Bengals on Sunday, the Bills didn't wait.

Allen has played very well this preseason. He's gone 18 for 32, 176 yards, and two touchdowns through the air. The third preseason game is usually known as the dress rehearsal for the regular season.

Nathan Peterman has also played very good in the preseason, going 17 of 20 for 232 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. A.J. McCarron started against the Browns, but left with what's reported to be a fractured collarbone.

We will have coverage all day Sunday leading up to Bills vs. Bengals at 4pm!
