Bills consider switch back to Tyrod Taylor at quarterback

20 November 2017

Rookie Nathan Peterman gets the start over Tyrod Taylor.

Thursday afternoon quarterback Philip Rivers was medically cleared by an independent specialist to start on Sunday against the Bills.

In one half, Peterman threw five interceptions.

The move blew up in the Bills' face right away as Peterman threw five interceptions.

In fairness to Peterman, the first interception he threw was more on his receiver, with a tipped pass being picked off by Chargers linebacker Korey Toomer for a touchdown.

Taylor, the starter since 2015, led the Bills to a field goal in his first series, but that only cut the margin to 40-10.

McCoy's 27-yard run in the first quarter tied the score at 7, which was on the heels of his 37-yard scamper.

Rivers passed for 250 yards and Keenan Allen had 12 receptions for 159 yards and two touchdowns for the Chargers (4-6), whose offence capitalized on the extraordinary bounty created by its defence.

LeSean McCoy was the lone bright spot for the Bills, rushing for 114 yards and a score on 13 carries.

The 135 points are the most points allowed over three games in franchise history.

The Bills have scored only nine first-quarter points, which is an National Football League low. There was a sense that Taylor, and the passing game, had plateaued at a level that won't be enough to beat good defenses or win in January, and the expectation is that Peterman will be more willing to drive the ball downfield and take some chances (with the understanding that could lead to more turnovers).

Peterman actually completed his first two passes, and his first interception wasn't his fault.
