Bob Koshinski, vice president and general manager of WBBZ-TV, has announced "The Fred Jackson Show" will welcome Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel to the show tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Eastern Hills Mall studio. Koshinski is co-host of the program alongside Bills running back Fred Jackson.
Manuel will talk about the Bills 24-23 win against the Carolina at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday.
Fans cheered during the final minutes of the fourth quarter when an eight-play, 80-yard drive was capped when Manuel connected with Stevie Johnson for a two-yard touchdown pass on a fade with two seconds remaining for a dramatic 24-23 win over the Panthers.
Jackson and Johnson made critical plays on the final drive to keep the sticks moving, while also deftly getting out of bounds to stop the clock.
In an emotional moment captured by Buffalo News photographer James P. McCoy, Manuel went over to the fan section where his dad was watching the game, and embraced him after the win.
The program will re-air tonight at 11 p.m., and tomorrow at 9 a.m.
Jackson and Manuel will breakdown the game against the Panthers. Members of the studio audience, made up of area high school football teams, will play the "Hotshot Football Challenge" with them and compete for prizes.
