Jeff Tuel to start for Bills in Week 9


The undefeated Kansas City Chiefs will once again get the opportunity to face off against a team that enters the match up with a back up quarterback. There was plenty of concern about the health of Bills starting quarterback Thad Lewis, and now reports have surfaced that Lewis will not start the game.

In fact, he is doubtful and will unlikely even be the back up. Those duties will go to journeyman back up Matt Flynn.

From NFL insider Jason La Canfora:

Tuel has struggled during his time on the field, so it won’t be easy for the Bills to pull off the upset.

For the Chiefs defense, they will get the opportunity to aggressively attack yet another unprepared quarterback that simply doesn’t have the skill set to handle the pressure and attack the defense in a way that would take advantage of the blitzes.

It could be a long day for the Bills offense.

    VERY SAD EFFEN DAY TODAY!!! With Tuel we get blown out! He is a terrible 4th stringer, I see us losing by at least 3 scores, most likely 3 TD’s!! With Thad we might’ve won or at least been in the game, with Tuel???????? GO NOWHERE TODAY, BILLS!!
