Buffalo Bills fans witnessed a brutal performance on Monday night as the offense couldn’t get into the end zone. Things may not get any better in Week 9.

The Buffalo Bills have not scored a touchdown since the fourth quarter of the Week 6 matchup against the Houston Texans.

The same fourth quarter when a 13-10 lead turned into a 20-13 defeat after a Nathan Peterman pick-six.

The trust in him was so low that the team went out and signed Derek Anderson. Anderson has started two games in which the offense has combined for a total of 11 points. And he may not even be able to suit up this Sunday.

The only other healthy potential quarterback on the team is wide receiever Terrelle Pryor, who signed with the team this evening.

This is bad news and even worse when considering it comes on a short week.

I don’t need to get into how historically bad Peterman has been in his short career. The fact the team signed Anderson off the street and made him the starter over Peterman explains it for me.

The Chicago Bears defense is second in the league in takeaways this season and will have a field day with Peterman out there. Khalil Mack may not even be on the field but it won’t matter.

It is extremely frustrating that we are only eight games into the season and things have gone like this. Three different quarterbacks have started a game through eight weeks and it is clear in hindsight that this team wasn’t set up to win.

Not trading LeSean McCoy at today’s deadline at least means the team is going to try to remain competitive for the final half of the season, and fans can still get behind a defense that has had flashes of greatness all season.

But none of that will be able to comfort fans if Peterman gets another start.
