QUOTE OF THE DAY
E.J. MANUEL, Quarterback
Q: How important was it to finish the two-minute drill (during Monday’s scrimmage) with a touchdown? A: I think it was very important. Not just for myself, but for our team. For our whole offense and our whole team, to go down and have a good drive against a great defense, like I said, to finish the scrimmage strong.
