Bills Win 24-23



ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- Rookie EJ Manuel hit Stevie Johnson for a 2-yard touchdown pass with 2 seconds left to lead the Buffalo Bills to a 24-23 win over the Carolina Panthers.
 
The touchdown capped a nine-play, 80-yard drive in which the first-round draft pick completed 6 of 8 attempts for 51 yards. Manuel also got help on third-and-6 from Carolina's 29, when Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was penalized for pass interference with 14 seconds left.
 
Two plays later, Manuel found Johnson alone in the left corner as Buffalo (1-1) bounced back from a 23-21 season-opening loss to New England.
 
The Panthers (0-2) lost yet another close game. They were coming off a 12-7 loss to Seattle last week and have now dropped to 2-14 in games decided by 7 points or less in two-plus seasons under coach Ron Rivera.

Doug Marrone says EJ Manuel won't be a franchise QB "overnight". How much longer do you think he'll be the Bills starting QB?
  He won't last the season
  Through the end of this year
  He gets this year and next
  He'll come around and be a long term guy
