It’s not everyday that a team promotes their practice squad quarterback and asks him to start the following week. Yet with starting quarterback EJ Manuel out due to a sprained LCL in his right knee, that’s exactly what the Buffalo Bills are doing this week when Thad Lewis takes the field to play the Cincinnati Bengals. Was Lewis the correct choice for the Bills?
Editor Dan Hope, writer Joe Marino and I discussed whether or not Lewis was the right choice for the Bills this week, what to expect out of Lewis and if the team should monitor the free agent market in case Lewis struggles.
