TITANS-BILLS TO PLAY IN HALL OF FAME GAME

Posted by Mike Florio on January 31, 2009, 12:00 p.m. EST

On the same weekend that a couple of former Bills players — and the only owner in franchise history — might be inducted into the Hall of Fame, more than 80 then-current Bills players will be playing the first football game of the 2009 season at nearby Fawcett Stadium.

According to the Tennesseean, the Titans and the Bills will square off in the Canton on August 9.

Former Bills receiver Andre Reed and former Bills defensive end Bruce Smith are among the 17 finalists for induction into the Hall of Fame.

Also a finalist is owner Ralph Wilson, who founded the original AFL franchise in the early 1960s.

The announcement is expected to be made today at a 2:30 p.m. EST press conference announcing the members of the 2009 class.

The press conference will stream live at NFL.com.
