To call Nathan Peterman’s first NFL start a nightmare would be a disaster to nightmares everywhere. The Buffalo Bills signal caller threw interceptions on each of his first two drives (one of which was returned for a touchdown).
He finished the first half with five picks.
The five interceptions in a half set a record for the Los Angeles Chargers franchise.

Twitter was rough on Buffalo’s quarterback.

Gruden, somewhere: "Peterman has thrown six passes to his own team, and five to his opponents. That's why I call him Fox News, man. Fair and balanced."

Twitter was also rough on Sean McDermott, the coach who decided to bench Tyrod Taylor for Peterman.

People doubted Nathan but he's already matched Tyrod's interception numbers in one game. You just can't teach that.

Tyrod Taylor should get to slam Sean McDermott thru a table #BillsMafia style.

Nathan Peterman NOW has 5 INTS in the first half. Sean McDermott has to feel like the biggest idiot in the world right now for benching Tyrod Taylor. pic.twitter.com/AvRXjUhbWp

Los Angeles finished the first half with a commanding 37-7 lead. It’s safe to say that McDermott is second guessing his decision.
