Manuel will get the nod in place of Tyrod Taylor, who suffered a sprained MCL in his knee during last week's win over the Tennessee Titans. Taylor practiced on a limited basis this week and was considered a game-time decision.

This will be the 15th career start for Manuel, who was a first-round pick of the Bills back in 2013. He has 16 career touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.
