ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone maintains his faith in EJ Manuel despite the rookie quarterback's latest dud.
That doesn't mean Marrone, on Monday, was anywhere close to being satisfied with Manuel's performance a day after a 27-6 loss at Tampa Bay.
Marrone was blunt, saying Manuel didn't play well in going 18 of 33 for 184 yards while throwing four interceptions to double his season total.
He chalked it up to rookie growing pains, adding he would have considered pulling Manuel if the quarterback was the sole reason for Buffalo's struggles. Marrone then stressed there was plenty of blame to go around.
The Bills (4-9), who play at Jacksonville (4-9) on Sunday, are on the brink of extending the NFL's longest active playoff drought to 14 seasons.

You’ve heard football analysts’, writers’, insiders’ and bloggers’ takes on the Bills from week to week, but this is where we want to give YOU, the Bills Mafia, a chance for your voices to be heard. From your calls on Sports 1280 WHTK’s John DiTullio Show and WHAM 1180’s Bob Matthews Show to your interaction through social media, all opinions are welcome.
Week after week, Bills fans search for glimpses of positivity from their beloved Buffalo Bills. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot to say after Sunday's beat down in Tampa Bay. It appeared as though the Bills gave up, and so did the fans.
@Kimmyjohns There isn't even a good college player to suck for, so what's left? Spoil the Pats finale? They'll just erase any lead we get.— Michael Parthum (@mparthumjr) December 9, 2013
You know it's never a good sign when someone can associate the Bills season with a jersey shore reference...
On the bright side, there will always be those few people that still BILLIEVE even from all the way down in Jacksonville...
@Kimmyjohns hoping for better next weekend here in Jacksonville. Let's go Buffalo!— Bob Hoppe III (@rjhoppe3) December 9, 2013
The majority of callers on WHAM 1180 and Sports 1280 WHTK echoed much of what was said through social media throughout Sunday night and Monday morning. People aren't feeling the Marrone magic anymore and believe this team is just another product of the "same old Bills" they see year after year.
Lead Journalist at BuffaloBills.com Chris Brown joined the John DiTullio Show Monday to discuss Sunday's loss.
Hear what he had to say about possible cuts, Manuel's regression and what to expect from the remaining games of the season.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Rookie Mike Glennon rebounded from one of his worst performances of the season to throw two touchdown passes and lead the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a 27-6 victory over the struggling Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the day, and the Bucs (4-9) intercepted EJ Manuel four times en route to their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start.
Manuel, Buffalo's first-round draft pick out of Florida State, was sacked seven times and doubled his interception total for the season.
The Bills (4-9) have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight season, and also are likely to extend the NFL's longest playoff drought to 14 seasons.
