Nathan Peterman benched for Josh Allen after disastrous start

Buffalo Bills quarterback Nathan Peterman in NFL preseason Week 1

The Nathan Peterman era in Buffalo was short-lived, to say the least. The Bills had a disastrous outing with Peterman under center against Baltimore, as the second-year quarterback was a miserable wreck.

In the third quarter, Peterman was benched in favor of rookie Josh Allen.

Before exiting Sunday’s game, Peterman had completed just 5-of-18 passes for 24 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Buffalo’s offense as a whole had converted just one first down and had a total of 45 yards.

This start was reminiscent of last year’s start in Los Angeles, without the five interceptions.

The Bills are really going to struggle this year, regardless of who’s under center. That much is clear.
