ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Nathan Peterman will start in the Colts Week 14 matchup with the Bills

NFL: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

In light of Tyrod Taylor continuing to nurse a knee injury, the Buffalo Bills are expected to start rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday tweets ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Peterman was given the start a couple weeks ago against the Los Angeles Chargers and almost immediately played himself out of the job. Peterman threw 5 interceptions on just 14 attempts, completing only 6 passes to his own receivers for 66 yards in that start.

While Tyrod Taylor hasn’t been great this season, he has a 3/1 touchdown-to-interception ratio (12 touchdowns, 4 interceptions) and is completing over 63 percent of his passes. The Colts are looking for any way to pull out a win as the season comes to a close, and they may have just had their best opportunity handed to them early this morning.

Can the Colts capitalize on this chance to get their fourth win of the year?
