3. Quarterback woes continue for Bills

In the back half of the season the Bills haven’t had much luck with their quarterback situation and this week against the Colts was no exception.

With Tyrod Taylor absent with a knee injury, Nathan Peterman was thrust into the starting position once again and had to deal with the snow.

Peterman did the best for the Bills, completing five of 10 passes for 57 yards and a touchdown.

Peterman’s best throw came at the end of the second quarter, when he found Kelvin Benjamin in the endzone for the wide receiver’s first touchdown with the Buffalo Bills.

But in the third quarter Peterman would exit the game with a head injury, after colliding with Colts linebacker Antonio Morrison.

Peterman dove headfirst while scrambling and was slow to get up before leaving the field. He was replaced by third-string quarterback Joe Webb.

Peterman was placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol following the hit and it is uncertain when he will return.

Webb finished the game, completing two of six passes for 35 yards with one interception.

If Taylor is healthy for next week against the Dolphins, he will be the starting quarterback according to Bills head coach Sean McDermott:
