Sean McDermott Deserves the Blame for Bills' Putrid Loss to Chargers

Nate Peterman's first start a disaster for Bills

Rookie Nathan Peterman gets the start over Tyrod Taylor.

The Chargers jumped to a 7-0 lead on linebacker Korey Toomer's pick-six on the Bills' first series.

Peterman actually completed his first two passes, and his first interception wasn't his fault. Peterman has since thrown two more interceptions to bring his tally up to four picks with 12 minutes to go in the first half. Coach Sean McDermott replaced Peterman with Taylor in the second half, and the veteran went 15 of 25 for 158 yards, throwing one TD pass and rushing for another score.

The Buffalo Bills (5-4) head west to take on the Los Angeles Chargers (3-6).

Worldwide Carbon Emissions Projected to Rise Again This Year
The 2017 growth may result from economic stimulus from the Chinese government, and may not continue in the years ahead. Coal use there is up an estimated 3 percent, oil use is up 5 percent and natural gas use is up almost 12 percent.

When it was announced that Peterman would be the Bills' starter for Week 11, the decision felt even more odd - the Bills were right in the hunt of the AFC Wild Card picture, and Taylor's play had largely been solid on the whole, with 1,600 passing yards, 10 touchdowns, and just three interceptions on the year.

Already making eight regular-season appearances as a member of the Bills thus far into the 2017-18 campaign, Matthews has hauled in 22 receptions for 253 yards and one touchdown. Bosa also forced a fumble while sacking Taylor on fourth down in the third quarter, and Melvin Ingram returned it 39 yards for a touchdown. On the next drive Peterman threw another interception under pressure to Casey Hayward who returned the ball for seven yards.

Chargers: LT Russell Okung left the field gingerly in the second quarter, but missed only two snaps.

Allen's second touchdown reception of the second quarter, for 2 yards, increased the Chargers' lead to 24-7, as he scored on consecutive possessions. Buffalo had to settle for a Stephen Hauschka field goal, as they trailed 40-10 in the third quarter.
