We've been focusing an awful lot on the quarterback battle going on in the southern part of New York, but there's one in the western part that you should pay attention to as well. Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel are competing for the Bills' starting job, and while Kolb has the edge in experience, Manuel played the entire first half in Sunday's preseason matchup against the Colts, going 16-of-21 with 107 yards and a touchdown.

Manuel showed an ability to keep up the momentum on a scoring drive, going 9-of-9 on a 95-yard tear at the end of the first half.
