It was a bold decision by head coach Sean McDermott to start rookie Nate Peterman against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Peterman and Buffalo’s offensive line however, were not ready for the Chargers’ second-ranked pass rush as they helped force five first-half interceptions by Peterman. It led to 24 points for L.A., who had a 37-7 lead at halftime and never looked back in a humbling 54-24 defeat for the Bills.

The Buffalo Bills quarterback, Peterman, threw more interceptions (5) in one game than Colin Kaepernick threw in the entire 2016 season (4).
One has a starting NFL job. The other no NFL job at all.
