    Tale Of The Tape: Buffalo Bills At Chicago Bears

    The Bills are hoping that second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel can stay healthy and make significant progress this season. He flashed his athletic ability and skills last year, but he had a hard time saying healthy. Manuel is a powerful man who can shake off the pass rush and throw the ball with power. If he can increase his consistency, the Bills could develop into a dangerous offensive team.
