(ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.) — It appears that Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel may take hold of the starting job. Manuel was 10 of 12 for 92 yards in the second half of Friday night’s 20-16 win over the Vikings.
Manuel came in a led the team 80 yards down the field and finished the drive with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Brad Smith.
“I just want to continue to show (offensive coordinator Nathaniel) Hackett that I can learn and continue to show what I can do out on the field to my teammates,” Manuel said. “I am satisfied and happy we won the game.”
Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb started the game and was 13 of 21 for 111 yards with an interception.
“I’ve been booed plenty of times in my career. I’d like to boo myself when I don’t throw a good ball,” Kolb said of the home crowd voicing their displeasure as he walked off the field. “No, I definitely don’t hear them whenever I’m out there. You’re just upset you didn’t complete the ball and continue the drive.”
