EJ Manuel solid in second straight win
by Chris Towers |

Bills quarterback EJ Manuel did a solid job in leading his team to a win for the second straight game Sunday, in a 29-10 win over the Dolphins in Week 2.

Manuel completed 16 of 26 passes Sunday, just slightly worse than his performance in the opener. However, he ended up with 202 yards this time, while passing for one touchdown, a 12-yard score to Sammy Watkins, and was not intercepted in the game.

Manuel has completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 375 yards through the first two games of his season, with two touchdowns and one interception. He will try to keep the good times rolling in Week 3 against the Chargers next Sunday.

EJ Manuel scores on ground, through air Sunday
by R.J. White |

Bills quarterback EJ Manuel was 16 of 22 for 173 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception while also rushing for 19 yards and a touchdown on six carries in his team's 23-20 overtime win over the Bears in Week 1.

Manuel faked a handoff and waltzed into the end zone on a quarterback keeper to the left side for an easy touchdown on the team's second offensive drive. After a long interception return in the second quarter, the quarterback hooked up with C.J. Spiller after misdirection on play-action for another easy score. While he couldn't get much going in the second half, he did help key the game-winning drive in overtime, completing a 20-yard pass to bring the team into Chicago territory.

Manuel still doesn't look like a finished product, but leading the team to victory on the road against a good Bears team should be enough to earn him some breathing room after the Bills signed Kyle Orton late in the preseason. Manuel's next test will come next Sunday against the Dolphins at home.

EJ Manuel will look to conquer road woes Sunday
by R.J. White |

Bills quarterback EJ Manuel endured what could at best be described as an uneven rookie season last year. Going 4-6 as a starter, Manuel particularly struggled on the road, where he turned in poor performances against the Jets, Browns, Steelers and Buccaneers before turning in a quality performance against the Jaguars in Week 14, his last game of the season.

Manuel opens this season on the road as well, heading to Soldier Field to take on the Bears Sunday. He'll be facing a new-look Chicago defensive line, rebuilt after the Bears defense struggled to generate a pass rush last season. Whether that pass rush can be effective could be the key to Manuel's success; the quarterback averaged 6.9 yards per attempt when under no pressure last season, but just 5.0 yards per attempt when faced with pressure.

Is there a good reason to start Manuel in Week 1? Not really. Every Fantasy team should be looking at a healthy roster heading into the beginning of the season, and there are anywhere from 14 to 20 QBs worth using over Manuel no matter the matchup. But a good performance in an unfavorable environment against a potentially improved pass rush would go a long way towards making the second-year player Fantasy relevant in 2014.

EJ Manuel not voted a team captain
by Larry Hartstein |

Bills quarterback EJ Manuel was not among six captains voted by the team, another sign he might not be the longterm starter, reports After Manuel had an uneven preseason, Buffalo signed veteran quarterback Kyle Orton to a two-year deal.

Manuel remains the starter, but if he continues to struggle, Orton will get his chance.
