Bills Name Nathan Peterman as Their Starting QB to Begin 2018

The Bills will NOT go with rookie Josh Allen in their season opener on Sunday against the Ravens, but instead announced on Monday they will send out Nathan Peterman as their starter at QB.

The decision to name Peterman the starter was expected after he completed 33 of 41 passes this preseason for 431 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

“Nate has earned the right,” Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters. “I thought his total body of work, all the way back from the spring through the summer and fall camp to this point — he has certainly earned the right.”

Peterman and rookie quarterback Josh Allen were among a large group of core players the Bills held out of Thursday’s preseason finale, suggesting they were being considered for the starting job in Week 1. However, McDermott said after the game that AJ McCarron, who started and played the entire contest, was still in the mix to start the opener.

McCarron was then traded to the Raiders on Saturday.
