Bills yet to decide if Peterman or Allen will start

Bills yet to decide if Peterman or Allen will start”

Once it was due to injury, but the other two times Peterman failed to finish - including during yesterday's 47-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens - were because he was downright bad.

The Buffalo Bills pulled the plug on Nathan Peterman after two-plus absolutely deplorable quarters against the Baltimore Ravens, inserting first-round pick Josh Allen at quarterback in his place during a 44-point defeat on Sunday. He completed just five of his 18 passes for 24 yards and threw two interceptions in the Bills' 47-3 loss.

"I'm still going through it", he said. "I'm looking at it from a lot of different angles, not only who's playing the position but who's around them".

"Overall, I thought we could have been better at a number of positions", McDermott said after the game. The second-year quarterback, who the Bills awkwardly tried to hype up last week, was benched in the second half.

"Obviously it wasn't a good showing", Peterman said.

The Bills selected Allen out of Wyoming with the seventh overall pick of the 2018 National Football League draft. He used his feet at times, as well.

"We have a lot of room to improve and going back to work as soon as we leave the locker room".

The Bills' 153 total offensive yards were the 11th fewest in franchise history, while the team's 10 first downs were Buffalo's fewest since 1979.

Despite his horrendous numbers, head coach Sean McDermott hasn't ruled out giving Peterman what would be his fourth career start on Sunday against the Chargers.
