Many wondered how EJ Manuel would be able to perform after playing in only two preseason games and coming off knee surgery before the season. Through the first two games, the reviews are good.
Against New England, it seemed like Manuel was limited with not many throws down the field. However, in Week 2 the training wheels came off, and the rookie quarterback responded well. Manuel finished the day 27-of-39 with 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
The day wasn't perfect for Manuel by any means with the interception and fumble on back-to-back drives. However, looking at his cumulative stats through two weeks, he has dropped back 66 times with only two turnovers and been sacked once.
He has demonstrated great awareness and has not looked overwhelmed at any point this season. These are all positive signs for EJ Manuel and the Buffalo Bills organization going forward.
