In no way did they believe their performances were flawless, but Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel felt their individual play accomplished a lot of what they felt they still had to put on display for the coaches.
Manuel showed command of the offense, was accurate for the most part as indicated by his 64.2 completion percentage and was decisive and aggressive with his throws.
“We did a good job,” said EJ Manuel. “When I had opportunities to make plays we did it. That’s what you’re supposed to do. That’s your job as a quarterback, facilitate the ball and get it to those guys who can make plays and run down the field.”
Meanwhile Taylor had to show he could make plays from the pocket and was successful there with his only two incompletions from the pocket coming on a throw away due to pressure and the pass breakup in the end zone on the touchdown pass attempt.
“Of course people want to see me throw from the pocket and I think I showed people I can do that,” Taylor said. “It is still a game by game thing so I have to continue to keep doing, but just I think my overall game… I was happy with the way I played. It wasn’t a perfect game, there were some things I could go out there and fix and I’m looking forward to getting those corrected and getting back to work on Saturday.”
