CHARLOTTE, NC - Former Clemson All-American Sammy Watkins caught three passes for 21 yards in limited action Friday night as the Buffalo Bills took on the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. TigerNet is at the game and will have plenty more from Watkins and the former Clemson players once the game is over.

On catching his first pass

"It was a crazy feeling. I got the butterflies out the way. It felt good to just get my first catch and get the first down. It felt great and I got into the game."

How is your chemistry with E.J. Manuel coming along?

"It's great. It's just building each practice. We've got a long way to go, but at the same time understand that he's young and I am young and we will get better."

On the thoughts of the first team offense's performance

"We're doing great. We're moving the ball. That's what we came out here to do. We showed consistency. E.J. showed great poise, our offensive line blocked well and we just came together as a whole group."

Manuel on Watkins getting his first catch

"It was awesome. I was happy for him. I gave him a high five and told him, 'Welcome to the NFL.'"
