That makes two teams in the great state of New York with rookies under center in Week 1, as the Bills will be going with E.J. Manuel in their opener against the Patriots. After the dominance displayed by rookie quarterbacks last season, Smith and Manuel seem like cause for excitement for Jets and Bills fans respectively.
