Quarterback EJ Manuel and Buffalo's sputtering starting offense isn't expected to get much rest in the preseason finale against the Detroit Lions on Thursday night.
    
Coach Doug Marrone's concerns on offense come after Manuel and company were booed off the field while trailing 24-0 at halftime of an eventual 27-14 preseason home loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday.
    
The Bills (1-3) combined for just 82 net yards and six first downs on eight first-half possessions before scoring two touchdowns on consecutive third-quarter drives against the Buccaneers' second-string defense.
    
They'll get one final dress rehearsal against the Lions (2-1), who are seeking to settle their backup quarterback competition between Dan Orlovsky and Kellen Moore.
