On Monday, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott declined to announce who his starting quarterback would be in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Nathan Peterman and Tyrod Taylor have apparently been left waiting to hear.
“We are still evaluating the QB position and we’ll take it one day at a time right now,” said McDermott. “I do think heavily about our team in every decision that’s made.”
From the way he's sounding today, I think Sean McDermott is genuinely considering starting Nathan Peterman next week against the Chiefs. Could be wrong, but that's how it sounds to me.— Joe Buscaglia (@JoeBuscaglia) November 20, 2017
Sunday, Peterman started the game against the Los Angeles Chargers, throwing five interceptions on just 14 attempts. He completed more passes to his own team, though, as he managed to find his target six times. While not all of the fault for the inteceptions is on Peterman, it certainly didn’t look great when he was pulled at halftime.
Taylor came in to finish 15-of-25 for 158 yards with a passing touchdown and another touchdown on the ground leading the offense. Taylor looked confident and took more downfield chances in his two quarters of football.

Former Bills came out of the woodwork to criticize McDermott for making the switch before, during, and after the game. Even current Bills were visibly frustrated by the move, especially veteran LeSean McCoy.
I guess we will have to wait until Wednesday for the news again this week.
