EJ Manuel engineered an efficient 80-yard scoring drive in the waning moments throwing a two-yard touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson with two seconds left to tie the game, with the extra point from Dan Carpenter lifting the Bills to a 24-23 win. Manuel’s exploits earned him a hug from Buffalo’s Hall of Fame quarterback.
Kelly was waiting in the tunnel of the stadium near the Bills locker room after the game and bear hugged Manuel.
“It was awesome,” said Kelly. “That’s momentous to get encouragement from someone like Jim (Kelly). To get texts from him during the week just asking how I’m doing, not necessarily worried about football, but just seeing how I’m doing mentally and how I’m handling everything week in and week out. That’s huge. To see him after the game I gave him a big hug and he was really proud of me.”
