One quality that stood out in the Bills game Sunday was EJ Manuel’s composure. It was especially noticeable in his final drive of the first half.
The Bills started out on their own 8-yard line with 1:50 left in the first half. Manuel led the Bills on a 10-play, 88-yard drive. He accounted for 68 yards in the air and four more on the ground, capping the drive off with a 17-yard strike to Dorin Dickerson for six.
Many will point to the fact that it is just preseason and question if the games really matter. However, Manuel started the game with a fumble during a handoff to CJ Spiller and could have easily been rattled. This wasn't the case and instead showed confidence, which has been missing from the position for some time.
Coach Doug Marrone has already announced that Kevin Kolb will get the start tonight against Minnesota. He made it clear this is nothing more than each quarterback getting his shot and is no reflection on Manuel.
