Bills grab early lead, and Manuel pops back up

Jerry Hughes, Matt Ryan AP

The Bills have an early lead, but nearly had a bigger problem.

Quarterback E.J. Manuel left the game after being drilled by Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, but was back after missing just one play.

That was after the rookie quarterback put his team up 7-0 in the first quarter in Toronto.

Bills coach Doug Marrone had lost his first four challenges as an NFL coach, but got one right in the first quarter after Manuel was initially ruled out of bounds.

After review, Manuel was ruled to have crossed the goal line, giving the Bills a quick lead.

That play was set up by C.J. Spiller’s 77-yard run, but there have been plenty of explosive plays. So far, the Bills have two sacks, and are making the Falcons line look overmatched, as it has so often this year.

    The Bills are going to be good in the near future. Their defense is getting bettter and better.

    I wonder why Manuel isn’t allowed to throw more than 10 yards today.

    There defense is getting better but there offense needs to also. There 1 QB away from being a great team.. if they didn’t draft a QB this year they could have drafted Jamies Winston or Teddy Bridgewater. all I no is they wont make it to the playoffs if there 4-8. They lost to the falcons and there just as bad. I don’t no if we can beat the bucs or jaguars anymore because there starting to win more games. I’ve lost faith in the bills. if mike Glennon plays like he is right now the bills don’t have a chance.. week 17 against New England we don’t have a chance either the only way we have a chance is if brady and gronk gets hurt and if they start ridly. if we win it will be a miracle.
