The Buffalo Bills will start quarterback Thad Lewis - who spent the season's first five weeks on the practice squad - against the Bengals on Sunday, according to CBSSports.com.

The Bills had worked out Pat White and Dennis Dixon after starter E.J. Manuel sprained his LCL on Thursday, but decided to go with Lewis instead. Lewis jumped ahead of Bills backup Jeff Tuel on the depth chart after Tuel's poor performance in Thursday's game, when he went 8-for-20 with an interception.

Buffalo coach Doug Marrone told reporters that he chose the QB that gives the team an opportunity to win:

"Thad gives us the best chance,” Marrone said. “We're going to give him an opportunity to see what he has."
