NFL: Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Chargers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Most of this past week had been spent with raging debates between fans and media over Sean McDermott’s move to start Nathan Peterman. Local media clashed with national media over the benching of Tyrod Taylor, and all eyes were on the Buffalo Bills to see if the fifth-round rookie could defeat the Los Angeles Chargers.

That did not happen, and the Buffalo Bills (and Sean McDermott) are now the laughingstock of the NFL. That is what happens when you bench your starting quarterback for a fifth-round pick who then proceeds to throw five interceptions in the first half.
