Bills rookie QB Peterman replaces Taylor as starter

By benching Tyrod Taylor for a rookie who has attempted a grand total of 10 passes, the Buffalo Bills have unofficially entered the 2018 Quarterback Chase.

Coach Sean McDermott made the announcement Wednesday at a news conference.

It marked the first time in 2017 that the Bills had lost back-to-back games as Buffalo did not even look like they could compete over the past two weeks with their opponents. After the blowout loss to the New Orleans Saints, they've decided to make a change.

"We are in the playoff hunt, and we are always focused on becoming the best team possible", McDermott said, per ESPN.

"I thought he did some good things", McDermott said of Peterman after Sunday's game.

Unless Nathan Peterman becomes an instant success, which seems unlikely given his lack of experience, the Bills figure to draft a quarterback next spring. "Moved the offense there".

Peterman came off the bench to replace starter Tyrod Taylor late in Sunday's 47-10 loss to the Saints, completing 7 of 10 passes for 76 yards and his first touchdown pass, to tight end Nick O'Leary, in Peterman's only regular-season action to date.

The decision comes after Taylor struggled against the Saints, going 9 of 15 for 56 yards and an interception.

The Bills head to Los Angeles with a 5-4 record, two games adrift of AFC East leaders New England.

For Peterman, Sunday will be his first career National Football League start.
