Bills’ Nate Peterman throws 5 first-half picks
CARSON, Calif. — Buffalo rookie Nathan Peterman completed six passes to his teammates and five to the Los Angeles Chargers in the first half of his first NFL start.
The Bills promoted the fifth-round pick and benched Tyrod Taylor against the Chargers. The decision is working out miserably for the Peterman, whose first pick bounced off the hands of fullback Pat DiMarco and was returned 59 yards by Korey Toomer for a score.
The Pitt product threw two more interceptions in the first quarter, both under pressure from Joey Bosa. He threw an additional two interceptions in the second quarter. Casey Hayward made two of the picks.
Peterman is the fourth Bills quarterback to throw five or more interceptions in a game.
