EJ Manuel accomplished something Sunday that no NFL quarterback had ever accomplished before: being the biggest international loser.
The Buffalo Bills signal-caller took a 34-31 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars at London’s Wembley Stadium, due in large part to some costly turnovers for which Manuel was responsible. Now, Manuel is the first NFL quarterback to lose a game in three different countries.
Manuel’s first international loss came Dec. 1, 2013, when the Bills lost to the Atlanta Falcons 34-31 in overtime at Rogers Centre as part of Buffalo’s Toronto series. The 25-year-old also has a 6-8 record in the U.S. of A.
Manuel’s feat is made even more impressive (depressing?) by the fact he’s started just 16 games over three NFL seasons.
If the league grows its presence in Europe like it wants to, then Manuel probably should do his best to avoid those games.
