Buffalo Bills backup quarterback Thad Lewis will make his second straight start and fifth start of the season for the Bills Sunday when they visit the New England Patriots.
Bills first-round draft pick E.J. Manuel is likely done for the season with a sprained LCL in his left knee. Manuel missed three games earlier in the season with a sprained right knee.
The Bills (8-7 ATS) are currently 8-point road dogs against the home side Patriots (7-8 ATS), who are still trying to wrap up a first-round bye and if the cards fall right, home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Bills are 2-2 (3-1 ATS) with Lewis as their starter. He completed 15 of 25 passes for 193 yards and an interception in last week's 19-0 victory over the Miami Dolphins.
