The week without Manuel leading this team has now come and we all will be watching to see what Thad Lewis can do. His injury will keep him out a number of weeks but the exact time is unknown.
With that happening on the negative side the plus side is the Bills are to be getting back a hand full of players. Jairus Byrd, Marquise Goodwin and maybe even Gilmore could return for this week. If they return especially on the defensive side of the ball it will be interesting to see how well this team could play seeing they haven’t played that bad even with the injuries.
Another thing for sure I want to keep an eye on as well as everybody else is the QB position. Thad Lewis stepping up from the practice squad will get the chance to show what he’s got. Something I’ve thought about is what if Lewis plays three games and his numbers are very good and Manuel is set to come back? Although I don’t think he will have these crazy numbers that would have this coaching staff wondering what to do when EJ’s ready to return but you never know.
I think this game will be a lowing scoring game with both defenses being pretty good but I think if this Bills team can get their running game going early it will open a lot up for Lewis and we could have a good shot at the win.
