ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - Despite a new quarterback taking the snaps this week, Bills Head Coach Doug Marrone says the team's offense will not change much.
"I don't think we've really changed," said Marrone. "Each quarterback is a little bit different so you have X amount in the playbook and then you play to the quarterback's strength."
Thad Lewis takes over at QB, with EJ Manuel out for a few weeks with a knee injury. Even when Manuel was healthy, though, teams were routinely stacking the box to try and stop the run - forcing the Bills to try an make Manuel beat them. That will likely be the case again, with Lewis at the helm.
"It’ll be the same situation," said running back Fred Jackson. "They’re going to do everything they can to get us out of the running game and make him beat them. I know that’s the challenge he’s looking forward to. It’s a challenge we’re looking forward to. To be able to establish that running game like we’ve been able to thus far this year and hopefully we can continue to do that and get better at doing it."
