Rex: EJ's accuracy looks better heading into Week 7

An extended stay in London may be helping the Buffalo Bills settle into the time difference, but it hasn't aided its injury situation.

With quarterback Tyrod Taylor still suffering from a sore knee, backup signal-caller EJ Manuel will get his second straight start this weekend, according to coach Rex Ryan.

Ryan liked what he saw from Manuel in practice this week, work he's expecting will translate into success Sunday. Manuel completed 67 percent of his passes with a touchdown and an interception in last week's loss to the Bengals, a line Ryan is hoping will improve.

"I think his accuracy has really improved,” Ryan said via "He had a great day (Thursday) throwing the football. So we'll just see it carry into the game hopefully and I believe it will."
