Bills consider switch back to Tyrod Taylor at quarterback

Bills vs. Chargers: Top matchups to watch in NFL Week 11

Slow starts, inability to throw downfield led Bills to make QB change

That dream quickly turned into a nightmare Sunday afternoon.

Ingram scored the first touchdown of his National Football League career in the Chargers' 54-24 rout of the Buffalo Bills. As Peterman moved the Bills down the field, he threw a costly pass that was intercepted by Korey Toomer who took it 59 yards down the sidelines for a touchdown. Nick Novak missed a key 46 yard field goal, as the Chargers still led 7-0. The Chargers have scored 21 points in the opening quarter of games this season, which ranks 28th.

The Bills brass believed the offense was not going to evolve with Taylor due to some of his limitations reading the field and making plays within the confines of the pocket, his unwillingness to throw into tight windows or throw receivers open, and a tendency to start halves slowly, sources said.

Peterman's three interceptions in the first quarter were the most by a QB since Geno Smith in 2014.

The Bills' decision to bench quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of Nathan Peterman did not look like a good one through two quarters, with Peterman throwing four interceptions in his first nine passes and adding a fifth pick later in the game before he was eventually pulled.

Peterman finished his first career start 6 of 1'4 for 66 yards and the five INTs.

The only bright spot for Buffalo occurred early in the fourth quarter, as Taylor found a sprinting McCoy on the left side of the endzone for the 2-yard touchdown.

The Bills been outscored 135 to 56 over their current three game losing streak. Meanwhile, the 37 points the Bills allowed in the first half were the most the Bills have allowed in a half since 1977 against the Seahawks. Their schedule gets no easier over the next few weeks, with a trip to Kansas City followed by a home game against the Patriots-the first of their two meetings-on tap.
