Buffalo Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone announced yesterday that QB EJ Manuel will start the team’s Week One game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, September 8th at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
ERIC WOOD, Buffalo Bills center
On the importance of having confidence in a rookie quarterback:
“It’s big and we had confidence with (Jeff) Tuel as well as EJ. It’s going to be fun for both of them. They’ve not experienced something like Ralph Wilson is going to be on Sunday and I’ve told them that. These coaches, I’m getting them ready. An opener against New England, it’s going to be wild and loud. I’m excited for them to get to experience it.”
