Bills QB Lewis gets start
Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said Friday that Thad Lewis will start at quarterback Sunday at the New England Patriots.
That means rookie first-round draft pick EJ Manuel's season is likely over. Manuel had injuries to both knees this season. His left knee has bothered him recently. He has completed 180 of 306 passes for 1,972 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions over 10 starts this year.
Lewis is starting his fifth game of the year. He also started in place of Manuel last Sunday in beating the Miami Dolphins, completing 15 of 25 passes for 193 yards with an interception.
