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.
Buffalo is expected to start rookie QB Nathan Peterman vs Colts with QB Tyrod Taylor questionable with a knee injury, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 10, 2017
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?
