Nathan Peterman Starting for Bills Over Tyrod Taylor is a Real Stunner

Peterman to start at QB SundayA big decision has been made by Bills head coach Sean McDermott.

The Buffalo Bills will be bench Tyrod Taylor for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers and rookie backup Nathan Peterman will get the start.

"This is about us becoming a better team", McDermott said.

Peterman, whom the Bills selected in the fifth round (171st pick overall) of the NFL Draft back in April, came in for Taylor during the Bills' loss to the Saints, completing seven of his 10 pass attempts for 79 yards and a score. He struggled against the Saints, but the entire team looked frightful and it was the first time Taylor got to play with newly-acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Taylor is coming off his worst game with the Bills in which he threw for 56 yards on 18 passes against the New Orleans Saints.

So far in 2017, Taylor had put together his highest completion rate in season at just over 64 percent.

Peterman makes debut: The Bills played a meaningless fourth quarter for the second week in a row, but this one at least led to the National Football League debut of Bills rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman. His touchdown to interception ratio was also higher, but his production as a passer and a runner are slightly lower from where they were the last two seasons.
