The Bills have benched E.J. Manuel for Kyle Orton.
After a seemingly promising 2-0 start where Buffalo "hid" Manuel by playing good defense and featuring the run game, the bottom fell out on E.J. the past two weeks. Through four weeks, he had completed just 58 percent of his passes with a 6.40 yards-per-attempt average. He took five sacks the past two weeks and threw a pair of interceptions in Sunday's loss to the Texans. Already 24 years old, Manuel is clearly best suited as an NFL backup. He often lacked confidence and poise on the field, and accuracy was always a major issue for Manuel dating back to his time at Florida State. Orton will be utilized similarly, as a game manager. He's worth grabbing as a low-ceiling option in two-quarterback leagues. We do suspect Orton gives Buffalo a better chance at feeding Sammy Watkins the rock than Manuel did. Sep 29 - 3:36 PM
