JACKSONVILLE, FL (WKBW) - Rookie quarterback EJ Manuel put together a good performance after a rough start to lead the Bills to their fifth win of the season on the road in Jacksonville.

Manuel, who had a passer rating of less than 7.0 after the first quarter, finished the game with a rating of 105. A performance that included two passing touchdowns and one on the ground. He also set a Bills rookie record for most touchdown passes in a season with 11.

The Bills defense forced four turnovers, including an interception by Aaron Williams on the Jaguars first drive of the game. Williams also forced a fumble on the one-yard-line as Denard Robinson was about to cross into the end-zone after a 24-yard run.

Rookie wide receiver Robert Woods tied a career high with five receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Despite the win, the Bills were officially eliminated from playoff contention with a win by the Miami Dolphins over the New England Patriots.

The Bills host the Dolphins at home next Sunday.
