In another startling coup of super sneaky journalism, Buffalo Rumblings has gone behind the scenes and uncovered another critical Buffalo Bills secret.

It’s not uncommon for offensive coordinators to have a starting script of plays to get the team in a rhythm. Generally intended to cover the first drive or two of plays, the idea is that the offense can go out and use the script to quickly and confidently execute a few known calls.

This week, a well planned script could be all the more important with Rookie QB Nathan Peterman set to make his first start in place of the beleaguered Tyrod Taylor. With that in mind, we sent our top men to One Bills Drive to try to find out what the game plan for Peterman might be. In an extraordinary bit of luck, we stumbled upon offensive coordinator Rick Dennison’s script for the first drive of Buffalo’s this Sunday. We share that exclusively with you:

There you have it! With an incredible play on words, Nathan Peterman will get the start against the L.A. Chargers. From play number two through the rest of the game though, expect Tyrod Taylor to be behind center, leading the Bills to a victory.
