Manuel leads Bills to 27-20 win at Jaguars
EJ Manuel threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score,
leading the Buffalo Bills to a 27-20 victory against the banged-up
Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Manuel bounced back from the worst game of his rookie season – a
four-interception performance at Tampa Bay last week – and left the
Sunshine State with his first win in five road starts.
The former Florida State star didn’t do anything spectacular,
just dinking and dunking the Jaguars for 193 yards. He also ran for
37 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
The Bills (5-9) scored 10 points in the final 2:14 of the first
half for a 20-10 lead. The Jaguars (4-10) rallied to tie the game
in the fourth on Chad Henne’s 13-yard TD pass to Marcedes
Manuel answered, though, capping an 89-yard drive with a 1-yard
TD pass to Frank Summers.
