Scrambling Bills appear to, once again, be in no man’s land
It’s hard to believe the 5-5 Bills were once 5-2 as they have since re-established themselves as a snafu, something that so many Bills teams have been since the drought era began 18 years ago.
Buffalo is under particular heat from the media following this week’s loss because of Coach Sean McDermott’s highly questionable decision to bench quarterback Tyrod Taylor for rookie Nathan Peterman despite the team holding the final AFC wild-card spot entering the game.
The Bills now find themselves relegated to the all too familiar “in the hunt” status after Baltimore replaced them in the standings this week.
Peterman was horrendous as he threw 5 interceptions in just 14 attempts in the 1st half. Taylor replaced Peterman in the second half and was much more effective going 15 for 25 for 158 yards and a touchdown while tacking on an additional 38 yards and touchdown on the ground, although the game was pretty much decided at the conclusion of the 2nd quarter.
