Chargers drop 50-burger on hapless Bills in record-breaking fashion

The Buffalo Bills shocked the National Football League world when they chose to bench their starting quarterback, Tyrod Taylor. Buffalo quarterback Tyrod Taylor had the ball stripped by Joey Bosa and the fumble bounced in front of Ingram.

In one half, Peterman threw five interceptions. The Bills were smashed by the Chargers 54-24.

The Chargers' defense has done a lot of things well this season, but they hadn't been able to turn a mistake into a touchdown - until Sunday. Mercifully, Taylor came out with the first-team offense to start the second half, ending Peterman's nightmare debut. The Chargers went into halftime with a 37-7 lead, putting the game on ice well before Peterman gave way to a quarterback he had no business supplanting in the first place.

Peterman actually completed his first two passes, and his first interception wasn't his fault. They also showed the folly of making the indefensible quarterback change.


LeSean McCoy was the lone bright spot for the Bills, rushing for 114 yards and a score on 13 carries.

But Peterman threw his third interception to Tre Boston while getting planted on his back by Bosa, and Allen then caught his first touchdown pass since the Chargers' opener on a handsome back-shoulder throw by Rivers. Meanwhile the Bills are tied for third fewest in the league, with just six total points on opening possessions. The Chargers have scored 21 points in the opening quarter of games this season, which ranks 28th. Buffalo had to settle for a Stephen Hauschka field goal, as they trailed 40-10 in the third quarter.

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.
