EJ Manuel proves his high pick status
It took every second of Game two for the Buffalo Bills to pull off the most improbable victory and it took a quarterback to do what had not been done since 1960…post a rookie quarterback rating of 89 or higher through the first two games.
The Florida State alum threw a touchdown pass to WR Stevie Johnson with two seconds remaining in the game for a 24-23 victory over the Carolina Panthers
“I can’t even tell you how it felt,” Manuel said of the touchdown pass. “I think I started crying right then. I’m not usually an emotional guy. But I’m going to enjoy these type of things.”
Manuel finished 29-36 for 293 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
“This isn’t about learning hard lessons,” said Steve Smith, who had 52 yards receiving. “This is like going to the dentist and getting several teeth pulled without any anesthesia, laughing gas, nothing.”
