Buffalo Bills: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: EJ Manuel

Taken in the first round of the 2013 draft, a lot is expected of EJ Manuel following a great run through college football at Florida State University. He ended his senior year with a 12-2 record that included an Orange Bowl victory over Northern Illinois. Manuel made his professional debut on August 11, 2013 during the preseason against the Indianapolis Colts. In the second week of the NFL regular season, Manuel engineered his first victory with a nine-play, 80-yard touchdown that brought his team from a six point deficit to a one point win with seconds left in the game. His performance awarded him the "Pepsi Next NFL Rookie of the Week". He later missed five weeks of play due to a sprained lateral collateral ligament. His early season performance proved that Manuel is one to watch, and hoping he remain injury-free in 2014 will be a strong contender for the Bills.

Offensive Star: Fred Jackson

Running back Fred Jackson took the long way to the NFL. He went undrafted in 2003 and played indoor football and NFL Europe before finally winning a NFC roster in 2006. Jackson battled Marshawn Lynch for the starting duties from 2007 to 2009 but finally won the job at the end of the 2009 season. Jackson rushed for over 1000 yards in 2009 and fell just short in 2010. Jackson was having a stunning season in 2011, rushing for over 100 yards in six of the first ten matches, but had his season prematurely ended by a fracture fibula. 2012 didn't start much better, as he injured a knee ligament that saw him sidelined for the first few weeks of play. He returned to form in 2013, rushing 896 yards and scoring nine touchdowns.

Defensive Star: Kiko Alonso

Kiko Alonso was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. He had a great rookie season with 87 tackles, 72 assists, and 2 sacks. He won many accolades in his season. In October 2013 he was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month. He was nominated for the Rookie of the Week for the second time after playing the biggest game of his career against the Bengals in Week6, recording 22 tackles. He was the only defensive player nominated for the PFWA Rookie of the Year, which he ultimately won in January 2014. He was also named to the NFL's All-Under-25 Team for 2014. With all of this in his rookie season alone, 2014 is bound to be a stellar season for Alonso and the Bills.

Head Coach: Doug Marrone

Following a run of coaching jobs throughout the college circuit and a handful of lesser stints in the NFL, Doug Marrone was announced as the replacement to Chan Gailey as head coach of the Buffalo Bills on January 6, 2013. At the end of 2008, Marrone was selected as Syracuse University's head coach, where he showed enthusiasm from the get go, leading the orange to two Pinstripe bowl victories and completely turning around a previously horrible run of form. As the only team to not make the playoffs this century, a lot will be expected of Marrone immediately. His current overall record as head coach of the Bills is 6-10.
