Here is what we learned:
- EJ Manuellooked better than he did in any of the Bills' five preseason games. He still had accuracy issues and he didn't make any flashy plays. Despite one ill-advised pass on the run that resulted in an interception, Manuel didn't make mistakes either. Playing the Bears' limp defense helped, but this was a positive step in Manuel's game. The Bills will take a game-manager over what he displayed this preseason.
- Sammy Watkins made a couple field-stretching catches just when we started complaining Manuel was in uber-check down mode again.
