04:52 PM ET 12.18 | Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone has announced that quarterback Thad Lewis will get the call when the Bills host the Miami Dolphins this week. The move comes as a result of rookie first-round pick E.J. Manuel dealing with a knee injury. The Bills find themselves at 5-9 as they host the 8-6 Dolphins, who are fighting for a playoff spot. Lewis has played in three games this season, accumulating 652 yards on 103 pass attempts with three touchdowns and two interceptions. When the Bills beat the Dolphins in Miami in October, the former Duke Blue Devil was at the helm of the Bills offense.

He's a former Blue Devil? They beat the Hurricanes this season, so why not beat the other paid players in Miami twice?

I'd almost rather start Jerry Lewis than Thad Lewis. Although he probably wouldn't make the fans laugh as much as the Bills' play does.

They would do better by starting Fred Gwynne.

I liked what I saw when they started him. Doesn't have Manuel's arm strength, but makes the Bills running game that much better.

This isn't a gimme game for Miami. Buffalo plays pretty well at home, especially if the weather is bad. (Buffalo? December? Bad weather? Never!!)
