Faith in Lewis

Posted by Chris Brown on December 19, 2013 – 9:13 am

While there’s no doubt that Bills players to a man would prefer to have EJ Manuel running Buffalo’s offense on Sunday, there has been a level of faith developed between Thad Lewis and the rest of the team.

After making three starts for the club and taking numerous shots in the chops in the first meeting with Miami, and some kill shots to the ribs in the road game at New Orleans one week later, Lewis has earned his stripes in Buffalo’s locker room. So going into a game with Lewis at quarterback is not an issue for the rest of the offense at all.

“He’s a good ballplayer for us. Really talented,” said Eric Wood. “Plays within himself, he knows the throws he can and can’t make. And he does a good job. He’s been impressive in practice since taking over those three games. Obviously, we want EJ out there, but we’re looking forward to letting Thad go out there and see do his thing, too.”

Lewis will make his fourth start this season on Sunday.
