Manuel Shines, Bills Hold Off Vikings

Rookie  first-round signal  caller E.J. 
Manuel  continued  his push  for the Buffalo  Bills' starting quarterback job. 
Kevin  Kolb's  chances, meanwhile, seem  to be slipping away. Manuel outplayed 
Kolb  and  the Bills  topped  the  Minnesota Vikings,  20-16, in  the  second 
preseason   game  for   both  teams.  The  Florida  State  product  and  first 
quarterback  taken in  the draft,  Manuel, was  10-of-12 for  92 yards  with a 
score  over three  series for the Bills, who selected the dual-threat with the 
16th  overall  selection. Manuel was a  perfect 6-of-6 on his initial drive to 
start  the third  quarter, which resulted in  a score when he flipped a 4-yard 
TD  pass to Brad  Smith and gave the Bills a comfortable 20-3 advantage. Kolb, 
meanwhile,  started the  tilt and completed 13-of-21 passes for 111 yards with 
an  interception.  It was  an  inauspicious  outing  for  Kolb, who  made  his 
preseason  debut. He missed the previous eight days of practice after twisting 
his  knee while slipping  on a wet rubber mat in practice on Aug. 3. Christian 
Ponder was  5-of-12  for a  mere  53 yards  in  limited action  for Minnesota, 
which  finished 10-6 last  season and fell to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC 
Wild  Card round.  Adrian  Peterson  again didn't  play  for  the Vikes.  He's 
been rested  so far during the preseason.
