Round 1: Rookies to face off on SundaySmith, Manuel to start in division showdown at Meadowlands
It will be a matchup of the first two quarterbacks drafted in April: Buffalo's EJ Manuel, the No. 16 overall pick, and New York's Geno Smith, who slipped out of the opening round and went 39th overall to the Jets (1-1).
Both Manuel and Smith, friends since attending high school football camps together, have already led their teams to fourth-quarter comeback victories and are considered the future of their franchises. But Smith insists he's not trying to prove anything to the Bills (1-1), who passed on him because that would be ''selfish.''
The game marks the first time the Bills and Jets will start rookie quarterbacks against each other.
