After taking the bye week to rest their respective injuries, Stevie Johnson and Robert Woods will return to the lineup Sunday. Way back in September, when Woods and Manuel were both nominated for NFL rookie of the month, the duo was beginning to develop some chemistry. This will be their first time back on the field together. Can they pick up where they left off? With Johnson also back in the fold, the picture at wide receiver has never been more crowded, so playing time for Marquise Goodwin and T.J. Graham is also worth monitoring.
The Bills have very few holes to fill on their roster entering next season, but if they want to eventually make waves in the AFC East, they will need EJ Manuel to take the next step. Coming off his best performance of his rookie campaign, Manuel had two weeks to prepare against one of the NFL’s worst defenses. Hopefully he can come back with another huge performance.
