Bills to start Kyle Orton over EJ Manuel in Week 5
by Igor Mello |

Bills head coach Doug Marrone told reporters in his Monday press conference that the team will start Kyle Orton over EJ Manuel at quarterback for Week 5 at Detroit, per the team's official website.

After starting the season 0-2, Manuel and the Bills have dropped back-to-back games. Over that span, he compiled 463 passing yards with a 3-to-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. He was sacked five times over that two-game stretch.

"It wasn't all EJ's fault. We just need more overall production from that position," Marrone said, via WGR Sportsradio 550.

After being released by the Cowboys in July and contemplating retirement, Orton signed with the Bills at the end of the preseason. It will be Orton's first start since Week 17 of last season.

Bills RB doesn't believe benching EJ Manuel will resolve issues
by Michael Hurcomb |

After opening the season 2-0, the Bills have dropped two straight games and the calls for a change at quarterback are getting louder and louder as EJ Manuel has a quarterback rating of 80.3 through four games. 

However, running back Fred Jackson said during an interview Monday with WGR Sportsradio 550 the team's struggles can't all be blamed on Manuel.

"This is a long season. It’s only Week 4," Jackson said, per the team's official website. "We can’t go into panic mode and try to change everything and revamp this and that. We have 12 games left in the season. We’ve got to respond. It’s not only on EJ to respond to the last two weeks. It’s on all of us. I can’t sit here and say all the blame goes to EJ because it doesn’t. We’ve got to get stuff done and every player on our team has to improve including myself. It’s not one of those things where I’m going to say bench EJ and put Kyle (Orton) in and it’s going to magically be better. I don’t think benching him is the right answer. I think we have to go in and re-evaluate everything that we’re doing and that’s how we’ll find the answers."

EJ Manuel struggles in loss vs. Texans
by R.J. White |

Bills quarterback EJ Manuel completed just 21 of his 44 pass attempts for 225 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in his team's 23-17 loss to the Texans in Week 4.

Manuel, who also added three rushing yards on a late scramble, continued to battle accuracy issues throughout the game. He connected with Sammy Watkins on a five-yard touchdown to put the Bills up 10-0 in the first quarter but largely struggled after that. The bulk of his yardage came on an 80-yard touchdown on a deep ball to a wide open Mike Williams. The Bills travel to Detroit to face the Lions in Week 5, and it wouldn't be shocking to hear the calls for backup quarterback Kyle Orton grow louder in the upcoming week.
